IPM IN COLORADO
The Center for Sustainable Integrated Pest Management provides research and outreach in IPM practices for small and large farms, non-crop lands and waterways, households, landscapes, green industry, schools, buildings and communities. We encourage the use of multiple and flexible strategies for the control of insect pests, plant pathogens, and weeds, and in some situations (such as within structures) rodents and other vertebrates. We strive to provide unbiased information and do not engage in any activity that creates the perception our organization endorses the products or services of any organization or business. The Center is based in the Department of Bioagricultural Sciences & Pest Management in the College of Agricultural Sciences.
