The Peach Entomology Lab's first adventure into the field as a team. It was a beautiful "winter" day in middle Georgia. We're looking forward to spending many more days out in peach orchards. As much as I love this warm weather, let's just hope it cools down for a bit longer!
Peach entomology lab had a great time at the 2017 Southeast Regional Fruit and Vegetable Conference in Savannah, GA. We had a chance to catch up with growers and meet some great people. We are already looking forward to next year!
The Fruit Entomology lab representing at the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Holiday Luncheon. I just may have convinced Santa to join our lab. He liked the sound of Dr. Santa Claus and he is usually free during the summer, so I think things might just work out. Fingers crossed!
I had a great time at the 2016 Georgia Vineyard Update in Dahlonega educating growers on the common insect pests of grapes and the best management practices for mites in the south. I definitely learned a lot and talked with some great people!
