A series of webinar sessions are on-going in an effort to share information about the regional spotted wing drosophila (SWD) situation and research/management progress made so far, and to provide a forum for discussion about gaps in knowledge and next steps toward robust, sustainable solutions for management of this pest.

The third session in the series will take place on:

Thursday, February 9, 2017
1:30 – 3:30 p.m.
