Pest Management Strategic Plans (PMSPs)

Pest Management Strategic Plans -- The USDA Office of Pest Management Policy (OPMP) is facilitating the production of Pest Management Strategic Plans (PMS Plans) which are developed by growers, commodity associations, land-grantspecialists, food processors, crop consultants, and EPA. These plans address pest management needs and priorities for individual commodities.

Each plan focuses on commodity production in a particular state or region. The plans take a pest-by-pest approach to identifying the current management practices (chemical and non-chemical) and those under development. Plans also state the commodity's priorities for research, regulatory activity, and education/training programs needed for transition to alternative pest management practices.
