Matthew J. Grieshop, Michigan State University, USA

Chapter synopsis: Perennial systems, such as temperate tree fruit, present interesting challenges and opportunities for the practice of cultural pest management tactics. This chapter outlines key cultural tactics for managing arthropod pests in temperate tree fruit, including modification of trees, tree architecture, orchard floor management, cultivation practices, mowing and the cultivation of orchard cover crops. The chapter includes a detailed case study on integrating rotational hog grazing and apple production. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future research trends in this area.
