The Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program at Colorado State University provides applied research, education and extension to support sustainable small and large farms, non-crop lands and waterways, households, landscapes, green industry, schools, buildings and communities.
Objectives of the Colorado Extension IPM Coordination Project 2014 – 2015:
1. Improve skills and knowledge in plant problem diagnosis, resulting in an increased number of plant management professionals using IPM practices.
2. Provide tools for new stakeholders to identify and assess risks associated with pest problems in and around structures.
3. Provide accurate and timely diagnosis and recommendations for the application of IPM practices through the CSU Plant Pest Diagnostic Clinic.
This project was funded by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Crop Protection and Pest Management, Extension Implementation Program (USDA).
