Integrated Pest Management

What is Integrated Pest Management?

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) redefines how we evaluate and implement pest management strategies across food production systems, landscapes, and urban environments.

Our mission with IPM is clear: it's not about eradicating pests entirely, but about achieving a harmonious balance. By maintaining pest populations below economically significant levels, we ensure a thriving environment while safeguarding valuable resources. The cornerstone of IPM is its effectiveness in reducing the financial burden on growers and minimizing the ecological footprint of pest management practices.

By integrating a variety of innovative tactics, we empower growers to make informed decisions that benefit their crops and the ecosystem. The result? Reduced management costs and a healthier environment for all.
