For home gardeners, raspberries are one of the easiest fruits to grow. Raspberries grown in Minnesota have relatively few insect pests and diseases. Gardeners who use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices often have good yields every year without applying pesticides. IPM is a sustainable approach that allows gardeners to reduce pests to a tolerable level by using the best balance of cultural, physical, biological, & chemical management strategies. IPM takes into account the level of damage a pest is capable of causing, as well as the possible risks to humans and the environment associated with each pest management strategy.
