Solanaceous Commodity Survey

Grants and Contracts Details


This survey will allow us to target 6 pests of concern in the 15-16 farms included in the survey. The establishment of any of these pests would have large negative impacts on the state¡¦s solanaceous industry. Kentucky has not participated in this survey before; therefore, this is an excellent opportunity to expand invasive pest surveys into a new commodity and educate these growers about the threat of invasive pests. The Cooperator seeks to conduct a program which is expected to result in: The safeguarding of Kentucky¡¦s solanaceous crops from this suite of pests. - Providing survey data about these pests in Kentucky. - Preventing these insects from becoming established in Kentucky. - Early detection and a rapid response if any of these pests are detected through this survey. -The entry of positive/negative data into the NAPIS database
