Activities

Distribution of Pest Management Information:
  • Program personnel make pest management information available to program stakeholders (i.e., University personnel, U. S. Department of Agriculture, U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, pest managers, growers, commodity organizations, consultants and other interested persons and groups) through newsletters (e.g., Chemically Speaking) Extension bulletins and fact sheets, research publications, presentations at national, state and county meetings, electronic mail and news groups, the Internet, and additional means of communication. 


Pest Management Use Data Collection and Reporting:

  • The Florida Pest Management Program provides leadership in the production of crop profiles for Florida agricultural crops. The program leader provides pest management and pesticide use data to the Extension specialists and researchers developing crop profiles for individual commodities, and reviews and edits completed crop profiles before they are submitted to USDA's Office of Pest Management Policy. Also, a national database of crop profiles has been developed and is being maintained at North Carolina State University. 
  • The Florida Pest Management Program supports the production of pest management strategic plans for agricultural crops produced in Florida and the Southeastern U. S. The program leader assists in establishing workshops for the development of pest management strategic plans, provides pest management and pesticide use data to workshop participants (university scientists and stakeholders), and reviews and/or edits completed pest management strategic plans before they are submitted to USDA's Office of Pest Management Policy. Also, a national database of pest management strategic plans has been developed and is being maintained at North Carolina State University. 
  • Timely pest management and pesticide use information is provided to the Southern Region Region Integrated Pest Management Center (North Carolina State University) and stakeholders upon request of the Center and federal regulatory agencies (i.e., U. S. Department of Agriculture,   U. S. Environmental Protection Agency). The program leader collects the requested information from University scientists and pest management stakeholders in Florida.


Monitoring of Pest Management Needs in Florida:

  • The Florida Pest Management Information Program serves as an information resource for the Southern Region Integrated Pest Management Center and stakeholders on current pest management practices, problems and issues in Florida. The program leader remains informed of current pest management and crop production practices in Florida through attendance and participation in national, state and county meetings with growers and agricultural commodity groups.
  • An advisory committee composed of program stakeholders is maintained to provide direction for the Florida Pest Management Information Program and help to develop state priorities for Extension and research activities relating to integrated pest management in the State.
