Spotted wing Drosophila (SWD) continues to be a top priority of Michigan’s cherry industry. To provide the industry with the most up-to-date SWD information, Michigan State University Extension and the Cherry Marketing Institute hosted the 2017 Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD) Summit in late November. Growers, consultants, industry representatives and researchers attended this day-long summit to learn about the accomplishments of the SWD Task Force’s recent grant funded research. Topics included SWD monitoring, insecticide testing, orchard modifications to reduce SWD populations in orchards, winter morphs and on-farm management programs.

If you missed this important meeting, video recordings and PowerPoints of select presentations are now available online at 2017 Spotted Wing Drosophila Summit.
