Pest Management Strategic Plans
If you are interested in developing a PMSP, it is important to work with your IPM Center and to use this checklist, created through a national effort among all the IPM Centers.
Pest Management Strategic Plans (PMSPs) address pest management needs and priorities for individual commodities or settings in a particular state or region. These plans take a pest-by-pest approach to identifying the current management practices (chemical and non-chemical) and those under development. Developed by growers, commodity associations, land-grant specialists, food processors, crop consultants, and EPA, these plans include priorities for research, regulatory activity, and education/training programs needed for transition to alternative pest management practices. The USDA's Office of Pest Management Policy (OPMP) facilitates the production of these documents.
