Partners in IPM: Working Groups

Great Lakes Fruit IPM Working Group

Led by Greg Lang, Michigan State University, langg@msu.edu

The overall goal of this NC IPM Center Working Group is to facilitate collaborative research and extension efforts in the Great Lakes region among bordering U.S. states and Ontario (Canada) that result in programs and materials promoting the adoption and practice of integrated pest management strategies that are effective, economical, and environmentally sustainable. Towards this end, the Great Lakes Fruit Working Group (GLFW) has three specific objectives and approaches: 1) organize and conduct an annual GLFW conference with widespread regional participation by researchers, extension educators, and fruit industry consultants; 2) develop and complete short-term educational projects relevant to Great Lakes fruit IPM; 3) update and maintain the GLFW informational fruit production resources website and email listserv for rapid group and stakeholder communications.
