Annual grant program supports IPM research and extension in the Northeast

The Northeastern Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Center has announced the recipients of its 2021 Partnership Grants.

Each year, through a competitive request-for-applications (RFA) process, the Center’s IPM Partnership Grants Program distributes roughly $200,000 in funding to projects that further the mission of the Center, address or identify IPM priorities for the Northeast, and benefit the region at large.

Each funded project falls under one of three categories: applied research, communications, and working groups.

This Year’s Funded Projects

Applied Research

Early season soil applications of entomopathogenic nematodes in high-tunnel IPM (Anna Wallingford, University of New Hampshire)

Evaluation of a grower-friendly attract-and-kill system for the brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys (Jaime Pinero, University of Massachusetts)

Communications
