Integrated pest management, or IPM, is a system by which pests are controlled using informed decision-making techniques such as pest monitoring and pest thresholds, instead of regular, scheduled pesticide use. Holistic IPM takes things to the next level beyond that, incorporating economic, social, and other advanced systems into the decision-making process. In this episode, Tom will walk us through all things IPM, including holistic IPM facets, techniques, success stories, and future research.

Tune in to learn:

  • What sparked the change from scheduled pesticides to IPM
  • What are some common IPM and holistic IPM techniques
  • How holistic IPM has helped cotton farmers in Arizona and apple farmers in the North East
  • What are some of the future areas of growth for holistic IPM
