Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a key approach for effectively managing and controlling weeds, pests, and disease on sustainable farms.

By implementing IPM techniques, farmers can prevent problems before they happen and better control those that do.

This webinar addresses the key building blocks of an IPM approach to farm management, focusing on methods farmers can utilize in greenhouses and hoop houses, through the experience of Peace Tree Farm. It consists of portions of two popular sessions Lloyd hosted at recent Pasa Sustainable Agriculture Conferences, where he reviews techniques he feels are key to IPM success.

This webinar was offered free of charge through support from a Specialty Crop Block Grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
