Integrated Pest Management
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a scientifically-based, worldwide standard for managing pests. It encourages the use of multiple and flexible strategies for the control of insects, weeds, rodents and other vertebrates and plant, animal and human diseases. The goal of University of Arizona (UA) IPM programs is the development and use of safe, sustainable and effective control methods that also increase farm profitability, reduce environmental and human health risks and protect natural resources for future generations.
