NYS IPM Delivers
The 2000 Annual Report of the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program marks the 14th year of public support for this statewide effort. Since the Programs inception it has funded more than 750 research and implementation projects that have reached thousands of producers. In fact, roughly 90% of New Yorks growers use some form of IPM. Whether theyre in dairy and field crops, vegetables, fruits, or ornamentals, our states 36,000 agricultural producers have a network of private consultants and more than 160 research and Extension professionals they can turn to for help and advice on problems. The $837,000 that New York State allocated for the IPM Program from 1999 to 2000 has been wisely used, and we all reap the benefit.
