  • Recommends pest management practices for tree fruits in the Mid-Columbia area.
  • The primary purpose of this pest management guide is to provide fruit growers with up-to-date information on registered pesticide uses considered to be effective for controlling insect pests, mite pests, and diseases, when applied at the listed rates and timings. Pesticide use is one element of integrated pest management programs. See pages 2-9 for additional information on pesticide stewardship and integrated pest management resources. Providing comprehensive information on safe and effective use of pesticides is beyond the scope of this publication. Pesticide users should refer to the product label for basic information on permitted uses and hazards associated with specific pesticides. The label specifies the minimum requirements for personal protective equipment (PPE). The potential for applicator exposure is generally higher for airblast sprayer application. Consider using additional PPE beyond what is specified on the label when making airblast applications. The National Pesticide Applicator Certification Core Manual ( Manual.pdf) provides a complete guide to safe handling and use of pesticides. For state-specific pesticide applicator information, see the Oregon Core Manual Addendum, which discusses the major areas of Oregon pesticide laws and regulations ( PesticidesPARC/PesticideAddendum.pdf).
