Proceedings of the Third National IPM Symposium/Workshop

by Sarah Lynch, Catherine Greene, and Carol Kramer-LeBlanc

Miscellaneous Publication No. (MP-1542) 306 pp, May 1997

The Third National IPM Symposium/Workshop took place in Washington, D.C., from February 27 through March 1, 1996. More than 600 participants from around the country attended the symposium/workshop reflecting a wide spectrum of professional interests including scientists (social, biological, and environmental), agricultural producers, and representatives of agribusiness and non-profit organizations. Two dominant themes provided a unifying focus. ""Putting Customers First"" focused on reaching out to the diverse customer base of USDA programs to identify IPM research and implementation needs. ""Assessing IPM Program Impacts"" addressed how to incorporate economic, environmental, and public health assessment in IPM research and extension activities. Other topics covered included analytical and data needs for pest-management programs, policies for promoting biological and reduced risk alternatives, and overcoming barriers to increased adoption of IPM practices and technologies.

Keywords: integrated pest management (IPM), economic assessment, environmental impact evaluation, public health assessment, pesticide policy, biological and reduced risk alternatives
