UMaine’s Highmoor Farm Featured

The Central Maine Morning Sentinel published a feature story about the University of Maine College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture’s Highmoor Farm Agricultural Experimental Station in Monmouth and its research on pest management. David Handley, University of Maine Cooperative Extension vegetable and small fruit specialist based at Highmoor, and Highmoor superintendent Greg Koller discussed the university’s integrated pest management policies, including how to control the spotted wing drosophila, a breed of fruit fly originally from Asia that now threatens soft-skinned fruits and vegetables, including blueberries and raspberries. The website Fresh Plaza also carried the story.
