A coordinated systems approach and its influence on pest and pathogens is becoming more important in the production and distribution of nursery stock both domestically and internationally. The basic intent of this workshop is to educate nursery producers in Michigan and around the region on HACCP and Systems Approach principles as they relate to nursery and greenhouse crops, to facilitate their implementation in IPM production strategies, and to assist producers in developing: staff management and training; phytosanitary management systems; and pest management plans. Doing so will increase production efficiencies, maximize distribution and minimize the potential spread of damaging pests and pathogens.

Michigan State University in cooperation with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Michigan Nursery and Landscape Association is conducting a workshop to:
• Educate nursery producers in Michigan and around the region on the Systems Approach and HACCP principles as they relate to nursery and greenhouse crop production;
• Facilitate their implementation in IPM production strategies;
• Assist producers in developing: staff management and training; phytosanitary management systems; and pest management plans. Participating in this workshop will help you increase production efficiencies, maximize distribution, and minimize the potential spread of damaging pests and pathogens.
