4 IPM Center Mission To develop, maintain, improve, and expand IPM practices in public and private sectors and to increase access to IPM information, extension programs, and funding opportunities for our stakeholders.

5 NC IPM Center Goals 1.Establish a process for stakeholder identification and prioritization of emerging pest management issues for research, extension and outreach to respond to economic, human health, environmental and safety concerns.

6 NC IPM Center Goals 2. Serve as a focal point for collaborative team building to develop, improve, maintain and expand IPM practices in the North Central Region.

7 NC IPM Center Goals 3. Enhance the ability of the land-grant system and USDA to provide IPM users, researchers, governmental agencies, and the public with the information and knowledge they need to increase IPM adoption and reduce unreasonable adverse environmental effects from pests and the use of pest management practices.

21 Pest Management Strategic Plans Pest Management Strategic Plans are commodity-based documents that take a pest-by-pest approach to identifying current pest management practices (chemical and non-chemical). Each PMSP, developed by a coalition of scientists, crop consultants, industry representatives, commodity organizations, growers and others, focuses on production in a state or region, addressing needs and identifying priorities for research, regulatory activity, and education/training programs.
