USDA and Fresno State University Create Integrated Pest Management Modules for Georgia

For decades, the U.S. Government has closely partnered with Georgia’s agricultural sector. Today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), alongside with partners from Fresno State University and Farmers of the Future officially launched new Integrated Pest Management (IPM) modules developed by and specifically for Georgian government agencies, universities, and research institutions, and the private sector. IPM is a pest control system used for protection of crop yields and quality while minimizing risk to human and environmental health. USDA will continue our strong engagement and partnership with Georgia to strengthen Georgia’s Sanitary and Phyto-Sanitary systems to enhance access to safe food, improve productivity, and continue promoting Georgia’s economic and agricultural development.
