Online Cranberry Integrated Pest Management Tool from Rutgers University

Rutgers University has a great online IPM tool, PestWeb, for cranberry, blueberry, brambles, grape, and peach. The database categorizes information by chemical, type (e.g. herbicide, insect growth regulator), and crop. For instance, if a search is entered for all herbicides, the database reports the list of herbicides along with links to the label information, material safety data sheets and any supplementary material.
