The overall goal of the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program at Montana State University Extension is to reduce health and environmental risks from pest management, to develop and deliver accurate information on modern IPM practices, and to increase IPM adoption. Our focus areas involve tactics and tools for plant protection, enhancing agricultural biosecurity, and IPM for sustainable communities.

Our IPM program encompasses several areas, including agronomic crops, communities, pollinator health, specialty crops, pest diagnostic facilities, and pesticide education.
