In an effort to assist chestnut growers in making pesticide and nutrient management decisions, an updated “Michigan Chestnut Management Guide, 2020” is available at the Michigan State University Extension Chestnuts page. The packet includes a listing of registered pesticides, nutrient management recommendations, a guide to seasonal pest occurrence and much more.

To protect yourself, others and the environment, always read the label before applying any pesticide. Although efforts have been made to check the accuracy of information presented in the “Michigan Chestnut Management Guide,” it is the responsibility of the person using this information to verify it is correct by reading the corresponding pesticide label in its entirety before using the product.
