A poster on Speciality Crop Insect Management includes images of insect pests associated with Horticultural specialty crops grown in North Carolina.  Insect identification, distirbution, biology, organic and IPM control with insecticides and management strategies and tactics need to be evaluated and implemented. Minor use registrations need to be prioritized and submitted. Production and marketing of these speciality crops to a diverse audience will promote nutrition and aid the economy throughout North Carolina and the Southeast.
