Landscape IPM Project
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and Plant Health Care (PHC) are strategies for managing ornamental plants in landscapes and nurseries in ways that reduce the potential for pest and disease problems. When problems do occur, the practitioner implementing an IPM/PHC approach follows a sequence of steps in the management of the pest or disease that is designed to minimize impacts on the environment. Below are some of the tools that a practitioner would use in implementing an IPM/PHC program.
