UC Statewide Integrated Pest Management Project

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is, according to the site, "an
ecosystem-based strategy that focuses on long-term prevention of pests
or their damage through a combination of techniques such as biological
control, habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices, and
use of resistant varieties." This requires extensive knowledge of the
pests and the vulnerabilities in their biology. The site has extensive
knowledge banks for common crops, pests and weeds. Means of
controling pests are chosen to minimize risks to human health,
beneficial and nontarget organisms, and the environment. The site has
an encyclopedica amount of information, with links to national
programs. Site by Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources,
University of California. (****) -SR
