Life with less chemical inputs - progressive IPM in practice for 20 years
Chemical pesticide use in society remains an important concern for the scientific community and the general informed and uninformed public. Effective IPM practices can lead to reductions in pesticide use and overall risk to the environment. Proper use of data for assessing pest pressure, risk of outbreak, precise treatment, and product selection offer opportunities for large scale, sustained reduction of pesticide use. This session will provide a 20 year history of Progressive IPM and how and why we still can be better.
