Several high value small fruit crops are grown under greenhouse conditions around the world. Integrated pest and disease management (IPDM) in greenhouse production of small fruits can take advantage of a number of practices for maintaining optimal crop health while ensuring good yields and sustainability. These practices include the use of resistant cultivars and clean plant material free of pests and diseases, effective substrate, irrigation, and nutrient management, regular monitoring and good sanitation practices, substrate disinfestation and sterilization with fumigation alternatives, modifying the environmental conditions to reduce pest and disease pressure, chemical and non-chemical control options, along with biostimulants and beneficial microbes. Several examples of successful use of these tactics are discussed and general IPDM guidelines are presented in this chapter.
