The current project types are:

  • Forming partnerships among growers, scientists, educators, environmental groups, governmental agencies, and other audiences for the purpose of advancing IPM
  • Increasing knowledge about pests and how to manage them in traditional and new settings
  • Establishing or addressing regional IPM priorities for research and extension
  • Teaching others how to use IPM to decrease risks associated with pest management developing capacity for growing food sustainably using IPM
