During the past 1.5 years during COVID-19, efforts to continue IPM programming online have led to opportunities to deliver efficient, timely and impactful outreach to diverse and broad audiences. This modernized delivery lined up well with the improved statewide rural broadband Internet access in Wisconsin, allowing the next generation of farmers greater access to learning opportunities.

Moving forward, the Wisconsin-Madison IPM team will combine traditional outreach methods, which are still valuable, with interactive and engaging online programming. In this presentation Colquhoun will share recent successes, challenges and ideas for IPM extension in the “new normal” of outreach programming.
