The mission of the Minnesota Extension IPM Program is to foster the development and adoption of IPM to generate economic, environmental and human health benefits. We work in partnership with stakeholders from agricultural, urban and rural settings to identify and address relevant priorities for research, education and outreach.

IPM Defined, USDA
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a science-based, decision-making process that identifies and reduces risks from pests and pest management related strategies. IPM coordinates the use of pest biology, environmental information, and available technology to prevent unacceptable levels of pest damage by the most economical means, while minimizing risk to people, property, resources, and the environment.
(USDA IPM Roadmap, revised 2013)
The Minn. Extension IPM Program is a collaboration of University of Minnesota Extension & the College of Food, Agriculture, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS).
