The Northeast Greenhouse Conference and Expo held on November 9 and 10, in Boxborough, MA was a great success with over 800 attending.

The educational sessions on pest management were all well attended. Dan Gilrein, Extension Entomologist with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County is sharing Tips on Thrips, Pot Drips, Mite Blips and Neonic Hit, Management Matters, from 2016.
