Oregon IPM Center
The Oregon IPM Center promotes and supports integrated pest management (IPM) for Oregon and the Northwest region for agriculture and non-agricultural sectors. We collaborate with Oregon's university researchers, Extension agents, producers, and state and federal agencies protecting Oregon's natural resources. Our primary goal is to serve as a one-stop hub of information regarding IPM research and Extension activities in our region. We strive to foster communication, participation, and engagement among IPM researchers, practitioners and partners to achieve economically sustainable pest management while reducing risks to human health and the environment.
