Summary of EIPM Project Efforts in 2013

The third year of our USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA)-funded project has come to end and a summary of our activities is provided here.  The eIPM project allows the UMASS Fruit and Vegetable Extension teams to work with local growers on a broad range of activities related to Integrated Pest Management for diversified vegetable and fruit farms. One of the core components of this project is working with several 'model farms,' who grow both fruits and vegetables and are open to expanding their use of advanced pest management techniques as well as working with us to better understand how a diversified farm can use IPM.
