About UC IPM
UC IPM Programs
UC IPM supports research and extension programs in integrated pest management (IPM). UC Agriculture and Natural Resources scientists adapt research for practical application, and Cooperative Extension advisors and specialists develop and deliver IPM programs to a variety of clientele, including professional pest managers, growers, residents, and agencies. UC IPM staff work with UC ANR scientists to develop "how-to" materials that help the clientele carry out programs and solve pest problems.
UC IPM develops and promotes IPM programs for:
Currently, UC IPM employs one CE specialist and eight full-time IPM advisors, and three farm advisors are affiliated with the program. Two advisors are posted in county CE offices, and a coordinated, interdisciplinary cluster of four are located at UC's Kearney Agricultural Center near Fresno; the extension specialist is located on the UC Davis campus.
Examples are the pest management guidelines and a home and landscape database of pest solutions for residential audiences, IPM manuals for specific crops, books about IPM in landscapes and gardens, a variety of books on pesticide safety, and an extensive weather database that supports interactive pest models.
