Spotted-wing drosophila (SWD) has emerged as a devastating pest of small and stone fruits worldwide. This webinar, by a team of researchers from around the U.S. who are working together to find organic management strategies for SWD will focus on recent efforts to release the classical biological control agent Ganaspis brasiliensis at organic sites with information from Dr. Jana Lee (USDA ARS), Dr. Kent Daane (UC Berkeley), Dr. Philip Fanning (UMaine) and Dr. Ash Sial (UGA).
