Cover of the Midwest Fruit Pest Management Guide.

Revised annually, this guide provides pest management recommendations for commercial tree fruit, small fruit, and grape producers in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Wisconsin. These recommendations have been formulated to provide up-to-date information on pesticides and their application. This publication replaces two previous annual publications: The Midwest Tree Fruit Spray Guide (MP651) and The Midwest Small Fruit and Grape Spray Guide (MX377).

Missouri law requires all commercial and private chemical applicators to attend training programs, which MU Extension offers. Visit the MU Pesticide Applicator Training website for details.
