Toolkit helps assess IPM impact
The Western IPM Center's IPM Adoption and Impacts Assessment Work Group, a collection of natural and social scientists from across the country, has developed online resources to help IPM researchers conduct basic impact assessments.
The online resources include modules on surveys, economic analysis, focus groups, secondary data, case studies, interviews and social network analysis. Chapters within each module describe when a measurement or method is appropriate, what to collect, how to collect it, how to analyze it and how to report it.
