Integrated Pest Management
Working to reduce health and environmental risks from pest management, as well as improve practices, and increase Integrated Pest Management (IPM) adoption. Our focus areas involve tactics and tools for plant protection, enhancing agricultural biosecurity, and IPM for sustainable communities.
The IPM program encompasses four areas; agronomic crops, communities, pest diagnostic facilities, and pesticide education. The overall goal of the Integrated Pest Management program at Montana State University Extension is to develop and deliver accurate information on modern IPM practices.
