Deadline June 5 – Submit your nominations for IPM Symposium Awards

The organizers of the 9th International IPM Symposium are seeking nominations for the IPM Achievement Awards.  These awards recognize practitioners who have made outstanding achievements in IPM adoption, implementation, and program maintenance. In 2002, the USDA, along with its stakeholders, developed a national roadmap for IPM, which was revised in 2013. This roadmap has provided direction for practitioners who specialize in IPM for research, implementation of new technology, and measurement of success in management of all types of pests, including but not limited to agricultural, structural, veterinary, ornamental, forest and public health pests. The success of an IPM program depends on how well it follows the USDA NIFA IPM Roadmap, engenders stakeholder support, and increases IPM adoption and implementation. IPM practitioners who have achieved excellence fully support the IPM roadmap and garner stakeholders to help with program implementation and team building. Continue reading
