What's Killing My Kale? Episode 4 - Spotted Wing Drosophila

This month's episodes of "What's Killing My Kale?" focus on Spotted Wing Drosophila. This invasive vinegar fly, now widespread in Minnesota, is a major concern for small fruit growers as it lays its eggs directly in the flesh of many high value fruits. 

This episode of the podcast provides growers with top recommendations on managing SWD from Mary Rogers, Assistant Professor of Horticulture at the University of MN. Additional information on SWD can be found at
