2017 IPM Online Conference

2017 IPM Online Conference

The 2017 IPM Online Conference, hosted by the Northeastern IPM Center (NEIPMC), featured updates from active projects funded by the Northeastern IPM Center’s Partnership Grants Program and from IPM-related projects funded through the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NE SARE) Program and USDA-NIFA’s Applied Research and Development Program (ARDP) and Extension Implementation Program (EIP).

The rapid style conference featured 5-minute presentations in which the speakers discussed one or two highlights from their projects. The purpose of the conference was to increase collaboration and awareness about IPM-related research and extension in the Northeast.
