Our IPM (Integrated Pest Management) program for pesticide applicators is funded by the USDA - National Institute of Food and Agriculture, and the Southern IPM Center. We offer pest management resources, regulatory impact information, and IPM documents developed with our stakeholders. We work primarily with crops at risk of limitations of IPM practices.
Specialty Crops At Risk Program (SCARP) is an effort to fortify specialty crop producers with a means to maintain their integrated pest management options. Crops (commodities) include both plants and animals. We also include other specialty areas such as turf, non-crop and urban pest management.
IPM Elements are concise lists of IPM and related best management practices.
Virginia and other states are developing pest management strategic plans to help the USDA and the EPA maintain important pest management tools as their registrations are challenged by the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA).
Virginia and other states are developing crop profiles to help the USDA and the EPA maintain important pest management tools as their registrations are challenged by the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA).
The project generates other IPM documents as listed here.
