Integrated Pest Management: Risk Avoidance and Mitigation Program
The goal of the Risk Avoidance and Mitigation (RAMP) program is to enhance the development and implementation of innovative, ecologically based sustainable IPM strategies and systems for (a) multi-crop food and fiber production systems; (b) an area-wide or a landscape scale agroecosystem; or (c) a documented pesticide impact on human or environmental health.
RAMP projects address major acreage agricultural production systems, high value crops such as key fruit and vegetable systems, or other agroecosystems. The primary emphasis is on productivity and profitability while addressing critical environmental quality and human health issues. The intent of RAMP is to fund medium-term projects that emphasize systems approaches, are multi-state/regional in scale, or show relevance beyond an individual state. The program funds projects for crops with high priority IPM needs as identified by stakeholders and that contribute to the goals identified in the National Road Map for Integrated Pest Management.
