iPiPE Newsletter

– Submitted by Kathryn Kimble Day, NIFA

iPiPE is a set of online tools, information products and expert commentary for the detection and management of pests that threaten US crops. By enabling sharing about pest observations and other data, iPiPE builds local and regional capacity to manage crop pests, reducing unnecessary pesticide applications, enhancing farm profitability and contributing to national food security.

A free monthly newsletter is now available to connect people involved in pest management with tools to help them. The newsletter shares updates from iPiPE participants including Extension staff around the country and their student interns, and is for those already involved with iPiPE as well as newcomers. Updates highlight how Extension programs are using the iPiPE infrastructure to communicate actionable pest management information to growers in their region. The January newsletter highlights the Mid Atlantic tree fruit crop-pest program and how they are using iPiPE to improve monitoring of new and invasive pests like spotted lanternfly and brown marmorated stinkbug and communicate time-sensitive information to growers to precisely time insecticide applications.

monarch

We are excited to announce the topics for the 2019 Monarch Conservation Webinar Series! The Monarch Joint Venture is partnering with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service National Conservation Training Center to put on another year full of informative and inspiring webinars on all things monarch.

Starting in February, webinars will be held live on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 2 PM Eastern Time. (Plus a bonus webinar in March!) The November and December dates have been moved to avoid conflicting with major holidays. Each webinar will be recorded and available here for later viewing as well.

Check out the webinar titles and dates below, and click on a title to register!

Please note this list is subject to change. Our events page will have the most up to date information on our webinar series, as well as a calendar of additional monarch-related events. Find it here.

We look forward to sharing this great series with you! Thank you for joining us.
