|2016||Integrated Pest Management Strategic Plans
||This project was initiated in 2016 with a USDA/NIFA grant award under the Applied Research and Development Program (ARDP) to create the “Integrated Pest Management Strategic Plan” (IPMSP) process and develop it into a model for stakeholder assessment and priority setting that has become an important part of Oregon’s statewide, and other regional and national IPM programs.|
|2016||Crop Pest Losses Impact Assessment Surveys
||The Crop Pest Losses Impact Assessment (CPLIA) survey process was developed by our colleagues at the Arizona Pest Management Center, and is a current Signature Program of the Western IPM Center.|
|2016||Western Region Pesticide Risk Reduction Workgroup||This project engages other western region IPM programs to achieve significant and documentable pesticide risk reduction across the Western US, a region representing some of the world’s most productive and diverse agro-ecosystems. Successful risk reduction here will translate into significant progress globally through the mechanisms that we are developing.|
|2014||Pacific Northwest IPM Communication Network Coordination||When federal agencies consider changes to pesticide registrations, they issue a “Request for Information” or open a formal comment period to gather feedback from growers and others with on-the-ground expertise. The Western IPM Center gathers comments from a network of informed sources throughout the Western region, and provides the agencies with “coordinated comments,” expert-written reports to assist the agencies in their decision-making.
|2009||IPM/PRM Marketplace Standards and Certification||Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and Pesticide Risk Management (PRM) Marketplace Standards and Certification.
Market place certification standards may contribute to agricultural transformation by defining minimum requirements for sustainability within an economic framework that is set up to recognize and reward high quality production with limited health and environmental impacts.
|2006||Reducing pesticide risks in the Senegal and Niger River Basins||Certain risks to health, environment and agriculture are so pressing (e.g. adaptation to climate change, reconnecting with ecosystem services, and reduction in highly hazardous pesticide risks) that a new approach to education and the relationship between scientists, educators, and farmers is required.|
|1996||Weather and Climate Models for IPM Decision Support||
Since 1996, IPPC has been developing and maintaining a weather and climate driven decision support website for pest management and related agricultural needs. Beginning with a small number of insect models, this program has grown into a complex system of models, weather networks and advanced features.
