Philip Rozeboom, IPM coordinator from South Dakota State University, will share, “South Dakota Integrated Pest Management Program Highlights,” at the next Pests and Progress Webinar on Wednesday, July 20, at 1:30 pm ET (12:30 pm CT).
The South Dakota Integrated Pest Management program (SDIPM) aims to promote IPM throughout South Dakota with emphasis on agronomic crops, specialty crops, pollinator health, pesticide applicators, public health, and diagnostic clinics. The overarching goal of the SDIPM program is to encourage stakeholders to make informed decisions for pest management to reduce input costs and environmental impacts of pesticides through the reduction of unnecessary and inappropriate applications.
Through these efforts, the SDIPM program has helped stakeholders throughout South Dakota prevent pests from reaching economically damaging levels while also minimizing economic inputs and potential risks associated with human, property, and environmental impacts of the pesticides. Rozeboom will be highlighting successes of the SDIPM program, as well as some of the challenges and changes for the future of IPM outreach in South Dakota.
