Our Mission

The purpose of this site is to provide timely, objective information about all aspects of vegetable crop integrated pest management (IPM), with particular focus on insect pest management in the Midwestern U.S. This information is provided as an aid to assist growers, processors and crop consultants in making better IPM decisions. VegEdge is maintained by Bill Hutchison, and Suzanne Wold-Burkness, Department of Entomology, College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences, University of Minnesota.

In addition to providing accurate information, we want this page to be easy to use. Let Bill Hutchison know of any suggestions, questions, or problems you may have navigating VegEdge.
