About Clemson University IPM Program


The Mission of the Clemson University IPM Program is to provide economically sound solutions for IPM practitioners, and the necessary tools and encouragement to progress along the IPM continuum. This is a highly diverse and interdisciplinary effort involving the development of research-based information, which in turn is extended to the public through a variety of extension, education and outreach programs. The Program is driven by stakeholder needs, and stakeholders have an integral role in helping to establish priorities for the Program.
