IPM News and Events Roundup 10/5/2022

IPM News and Events Roundup 

A weekly collection of IPM news, webinars, employment, funding opportunities, and more from the Northeastern IPM Center 

If you have IPM-related research, events, or other IPM news you would like to have included, please email Jerrie Haines at jlh472@cornell.edu. If you would like to subscribe to the weekly Roundup, please email northeastipm@cornell.edu. Past Roundups are archived on our website

The September 30, 2022 Roundup didn’t go out due to covid and other medical issues. I’m sending this one because the first item from the Southern IPM Center has a deadline of Friday, October 7.

I’m also including the Northeastern IPM Center Partnerships Grants RFA announcement again.

I hope to get out a more complete Roundup on October 7.

Stay safe and well, Deb Grantham
