Partnerships

  • We cannot succeed alone. We need to develop and maintain very close ties to:

    • Extension

    • Crop Consultants

    • State Agricultural Agencies

    • Commodity Groups

    • Agrichemical Dealers

    • Anyone else who influences recommendations

Partnerships

  • “They” focus on Efficacy and Economics.

  • “We” focus on Environmental risks and appropriate mitigation strategies.

  • But all three of these must be integrated into final pest management decisions.

  • Together, we must deliver an integrated message and provide appropriate incentives for implementing reduced risk alternatives.


Pest management certification nrcs
Pest Management Certification (NRCS)

  • Anyone can developthe pest management component of a conservation plan.

  • Certification is only required to approve the pest management component of a conservation plan.

  • NRCS certification is for Conservation Planners not Pest Advisors, although there may be some overlapping requirements.
