Extension IPM Implementation
The Extension IPM Implementation Program
helps agricultural producers and other pest
managers gain confidence in alternative pest
management strategies as they are demonstrated
and evaluated in production and other settings.
A strong NIFA/land-grant university partnership
permits the IPM program to address pest management
challenges on an appropriate scale—from
county level to multi-state production regions.
Each land-grant university is able to tailor
program activities to needs identified by
stakeholder advisory committees and commodity
teams operating at the state and local levels.
These efforts all contribute to the IPM
program's four national objectives:
- To safeguard human health and the environment.
- To increase the range of benefits achieved
by those who use IPM methods.
- To increase the supply and dissemination
of IPM knowledge.
- To enhance collaborations among stakeholders.
