Start Year Project Title Project Description
2016 IPM 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 IPM Strategic Planning 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 Pest Losses Impact Assessment The Pest Losses Impact Assessment 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 Mitigation Alliance 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 Northwest IPM 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. 
2018 Pesticide Risk Reduction in African Systems: Fall Armyworm

 

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.
