Pest Management Strategic Plans and Crop Profiles

Pest Management Strategic Plans (PMSPs) document current pest-management issues and practices in a particular crop, and set priorities for research, regulation and education. They are developed during collaborations between growers, commodity associations, researchers, crop consultants and others. Most PMSPs focus on a single commodity in a particular region and use a pest-by-pest approach to document current management practices and those under development. PMSPs for non-agricultural settings address the unique pest management conditions and challenges of the setting.

Crop Profiles are snapshots of crop production practices for agricultural commodities. Crop Profiles – Searchable by region, crop or state (crop profile guidelines are also available).
