Integrated Pest Management for Agriculture

IPM improves profitability while reducing the impact of pest management on the environment and human health. Moreover, federal and state laws and regulations favor the use of integrated pest management. For instance, the Food Quality Protection Act greatly restricts the use of pesticides while promoting IPM practices.

Regardless of your agricultural philosophy, whether conventional, sustainable, or organic, IPM provides appropriate solutions to manage insects, diseases, weeds and vertebrates.

IPM practices and strategies have been developed for every agricultural crop.

For some crops, seasonal pest information is available by telephone by calling 1-800-PENN IPM.
