Integrated pest management (IPM)
Moving crop protection towards a more sustainable future.
Integrated pest management (IPM) is a coordinated and planned strategy for the prevention, detection and control of pests, weeds, and diseases.
The continuing loss of plant protection products and rising levels of resistance means that the conventional crop protection toolbox is shrinking. At the same time, many policy drivers emphasise a need for reduced reliance on pesticides.
We aim to establish IPM practice as the ‘new normal’, and to that end, we are adopting a prevent, detect, control mantra.
With a focus on cereal and oilseed crops, our IPM hub features information on pest management strategies, providing easy access to the latest research results and resources.
