iPiPE Cooperative Agricultural Project RFA is open

The Integrated Pest Information Platform for Extension and Education (iPiPE) is now accepting applications for 4-year Crop-Pest Program statements of interest for their Cooperative Agricultural Projects. The iPiPE CAP, funded by a 2015 USDA AFRI 5-yr $7 million grant, provides such an infrastructure with cyberage tools, information products and expert commentary for detection and management of new, foreign, or emerging target pests and endemic pests that threaten U.S. crops. By categorizing pests, data, and users, it enables sharing pest observations while protecting privacy of individuals, companies, and government agencies. iPiPE Crop-Pest Programs (CPPs) incentivize growers and consultants to submit observations on target and endemic pests by providing tools and information for timely management decisions. Coordinated by extension professionals from across the nation, CPPs address a variety of crops and pests and provide undergraduate students with hands-on extension and diagnostic experiences. Risk-based research helps prioritize detection efforts for target pests and direct in-field scouting for endemic pests.

Observations housed in a national pest observation depository enable future research using geographically extensive, multi-year databases. The iPiPE CAP will fund 7 new CPPs in 2018.

Deadline: May 4, 2017, at 5:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time Continue reading
