Agricultural Pest-spotted wing Drosophila

In 2015, The RCCD completed a small continuation of a 2014 project investigating the relationships between the spotted wing Drosophila (SWD) and the presence of wild plant

hosts, with emphasis on invasive plants. The goal of this project was to better understand how management of vegetation surrounding farm fields may impact SWD pest pressure. This project was funded through the New Hampshire Association Conservation Districts and the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program through the New Hampshire Department of Markets and Foods.
