Integrated Pest Management

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description OTA has participated as an advisory member of the Department of Food and Agriculture's (DFA) Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Council. The Council's purpose has been to seek the coordination of the perspectives and activities of those interested in the IPM approach. The goal of IPM is to use nonchemical instead of chemical methods when feasible to control pests, and when chemical methods are used, to reduce exposure and risk to the minimum necessary. OTA has assisted DFA by producing draft principles of organization for the group, which were adopted after some modification. OTA also presented options for incorporation of the group, and developed a draft bill to establish an IPM certification system, including verification of IPM procedures.
