MyIPM Smartphone App Series

The MyIPM smartphone application was originally developed in 2012 by Clemson University for South Carolina peach and strawberry growers, but has since expanded into a tool that serves all fruit growers along the east coast. The app content is maintained in collaboration with fruit extension specialists at Cornell University, University of Massachusetts, Pennsylvania State University, University of Maryland, North Carolina State University, and the University of Georgia. The app is available in the Apple Store and Google Play for free to promote Integrated Pest Management for sustained, commercial fruit crop production.
