Biopesticide products can provide ornamentals growers cost-effective control of plant diseases. In order to achieve commercially acceptable disease control using biopesticides, growers must develop and implement crop production and disease management practices that go beyond calendar spray programs, reacting to diseases, and traditional plant culture. Practical experiences in the development and implementation of smart integrated disease management programs using commercial biopesticides, continuous crop monitoring, and good production practices will be presented and discussed.
