The available funding allow our participation in a cooperative, multi-state study focusing on the most effective early season thrips management strategies. Multiple sites in NC, SC, and VA provided a critical, yet uniform evaluation of a variety of management strategies in different soil types, weather conditions, and site specific practices. The real value of these trials in 2014 was the consisitency of the data collected that provide great efficiency in developing consistent thrips control practices for the region in a shorter period of time than wuld be required through individual stat testing. Growers throughout the region can move forward with great confidence with the knowledge that these recommendations are based on a strong and divere data base. The 2015 insect control recommendations received a revision due to the value of the data collected from these trials.
