Home grown strawberries, raspberries and grapes are a rewarding experience for the gardener as well as the consumer of the fresh fruits and jellies. If properly managed, these crops can be a source of enjoyment for years.

A good IPM program makes use of cultural, varietal and chemical means of preventing or reducing disease losses.
