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.
