Great Lakes Vegetable Working Group


The Great Lakes Vegetable Working Group (GLVWG) serves as a focal point for team building to develop, improve, maintain and expand IPM practices in the North Central region.

We facilitate communication and collaboration among GLVWG members through use of our listserv. We also coordinate and conduct an annual meeting to exchange programmatic and research information, build multi-state collaborations, and identify current trends and priorities within the vegetable industry.
