Vermont Agriculture Groups Receive Nearly $190,000 to Benefit Specialty Crop Farmers

Our swede midge research and Rachel’s spotted wing drosophila work landed us a decent chunk of change.

· University of Vermont to increase the profitability of Brassica farmers by developing low-input management strategies to reduce Brassica losses to swede midge ($50,000).

· University of Vermont’s Department of Plant and Social Science to help blueberry and raspberry growers minimize the damage caused by the spotted wing drosophila ($12,296).
