State and Local Safeguarding


At the State level, CIPM facilitates the coordination of integrated pest management (IPM) programs through the NC-IPM Coordinator and engages most faculty in entomology, plant pathology and weed science that have state-wide extension and research appointments with IPM outcomes. The State IPM Program engages stakeholders to identify and address priority pest issues and translates research-based information to equip extension agents, growers and other partners to implement IPM practices that reduce negative pest impacts.
