There are a wide variety of field peppers grown in Ontario -- from sweet to hot, banana to cherry, and everything in between -- but the most widely grown are sweet bell peppers. The most important pepper pests are European corn borer and bacterial disease, but many other diseases, insects, and disorders affect pepper as well. This training module covers field peppers, from transplanting to harvest.
