Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the process of using multiple strategies to manage insect, disease, and weed pest populations at sustainable levels for the long-term.
As farmers and land managers, it is not our goal to eliminate all pests in agricultural fields with control, but to manage pest populations to economical and market driven levels of tolerance. By using IPM we provide living habitats for soil organisms, pollinators, and wildlife while still producing high quality wild blueberries.
Following the IPM process, cultural and mechanical methods of pest management are explored first and chemical management is used as a last resort.
