"The IPM Toolbox" Webinar Series

The IPM Toolbox

Got an IPM question? Need to know the latest IPM information? The Northeastern IPM Center has the answers with our webinar series, “The IPM Toolbox.” We’ve asked the experts to join us online for an hour of dialogue about an effective IPM practice, method, or effort.

It can be challenging to know how to implement IPM, whether for the beginner or advanced gardener, grower, or commercial operator. The IPM Toolbox webinar series will share IPM tools that improve environmental and social health and maintain profitability.
