Fifth Integrated Pest Management Online Conference
October 30, 2019, 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
The fifth IPM Online Conference hosted by the Northeastern IPM Center (NEIPMC) will feature updates from active projects funded by the NEIPMC’s Partnership Grants Program. In addition, the online conference will have updates from IPM-related projects funded through the Northeastern Sustainable Agriculture and Education (NE SARE) Program and USDA-NIFA’s Applied Research and Development Program (ARDP) and Extension Implementation Program (EIP).
The rapid style conference will feature 5-minute presentations in which the speakers will discuss, show, or possibly sing! about 1 or 2 highlights from their projects. The purpose of the conference is to increase collaboration and awareness about current IPM-related research and extension in the Northeast in a fun way.
Anyone with an internet connection is invited to watch this exciting event hosted by the Northeastern IPM Center. Below is a list of the projects that will be discussed during the approximately 2 ½ hour event that will take place via Zoom. The conference will also be recorded and made available on NortheastIPM.org.
