The Home and Market Garden (Urban Farm) IPM Toolkit wheel slide chart is a great tool for urban farmers as well as home and community gardeners interested in vegetable production.

This wheel slide chart has both conventional and organic insecticide listings for nearly 20 different crops. It also has a listing of common insect pests with accompanying images that may help when scouting in garden vegetables.

To receive copy of this wheel slide chart, email Ayanava Majumdar at azm0024@aces.edu.

For growers or gardeners that are looking for organic only options, refer to the Alternative Vegetable IPM Recommendations Slide Chart, which describes the three levels of sustainable integrated pest management practices.

Alabama Extension’s recommendations include products by active ingredients and labeled use rates for the primary diseases of turfgrass. Before using an insecticide, it is important to properly identify the pest. Alabama Extension has information describing the identification, biology, and management of many of the important pests of turfgrass. If an insecticide is needed, read the labeled instructions even if you have previously used the product. There have been changes in insecticide labeling recently, especially related to location and timing.

IPM guides for other crops as well as a general IPM overview, safety recommendations and directions for submitting samples can be found in the Integrated Pest Management Guides.
