When we first started farming we thought we didn’t have pests. Either they hadn’t found us yet, or we hadn’t found them because we didn’t know what we were looking for. Now we scout weekly in the greenhouses from late winter through spring to make sure we catch problems before they get out of hand, paying special attention to the crops we know are most susceptible. We look for any pest or disease issues, documenting trouble areas and our plan of action. We have yellow sticky cards to help diagnose problems, but it is best just to get our faces down in the crops to check. We also train our staff to be on the lookout as they are harvesting.
