2016 Partnership Grants Announced
In 2016, the Northeastern IPM Center awarded more than $250,000 for research and outreach through its competitive IPM Partnership Grants program.
This year, the projects include efforts to control the spread of the invasive spotted wing drosophila, investigate fungi for biological control, and manage bed bugs.
A new reporting system will allow project directors to contribute project-specific data into an online system that the Center is using to get a better understanding of impacts.
“We want to capture the key elements of each project not only to share with our audiences, but also to assess the impacts of IPM in the Northeast,” said Steve Young, director of the Northeastern IPM Center.
The total amount awarded is $257,997.
