With the growing season upon us, I will mention 3 Extension publications that are available and that can help you make management decisions this year.  The 2016 Weed Control Guide is available as a free pdf download at the Extension Ag Crops Team website at: http://agcrops.osu.edu/ , click on the publications tab at the top of the page.  For those who would like a hard copy, we will print out the 220 page publication, hole punch it and put it in a 3-ring binder for $10.  For commercial vegetable growers the 2016 Midwest Vegetable Production Guide is available for $10.  It includes recommendations to control weed, insect and disease pests for all vegetable crops.  Finally, a new publication this year is the Midwest Fruit Pest Management Guide available for $17.  This 171 page publication combines the information that was formerly in two separate publications, The Midwest Small Fruit and Grape Spray Guide and The Midwest Tree Fruit Spray Guide.  The new Fruit Pest Management Guide contains pest spray schedules for apples, pears, cherries, peaches, plums, grapes, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries.
