Got pests and want to use integrated pest management? Use a year-round IPM program. If you're not familiar with what a year-round IPM program is, think of it as a checklist for the agricultural pest management activities you should be doing throughout the season. Take the new video tour “Using Year-Round IPM Programs” to explore the benefits and uses of IPM in field, orchard, and vineyard crops. Managing pests in Cole Crops and Pistachio? View our two newest year-round IPM programs.
Monitoring the most important pests, making management decisions, and planning for the following season are all activities in the year-round IPM programs. Even better are how they connect to the Pest Management Guidelines so you can read about the details…how to monitor, what the treatment thresholds are, or the best pesticide to use.
One of the basic IPM principles is to choose the best pesticide for the situation. The year-round IPM programs help you do this by ensuring you're applying pesticides only when you need to, and providing you with information so you can choose the most effective pesticide with the least harm to water quality, air quality, natural enemies, and honey bees.
The checklist, photo ID pages, and monitoring forms are easily printable for use in the field. Interested in other crops? We have 25 year-round IPM programs:
