The mission of the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR) is to support, promote and enhance the long term viability of Massachusetts Agriculture with the aim of helping this state's agricultural businesses become as economically and environmentally sound as possible. By so doing it is hoped that our farmers will continue to support and maintain thousands of acres of valuable open space for the benefit of the state's economy and environment.

The Northeastern IPM Center promotes the development and adoption of integrated pest management (IPM), a sound, sensible approach to dealing with pests and pesticide problems. Working with partners in agricultural, urban, and rural settings, we identify—and address—regional priorities for research, education, and outreach throughout the Northeast. Competitive grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture fund our programs, and the Center is administered at Cornell University.
