This project includes the continued implementation of previously EIPM funded projects and one additionalproject that addresses IPM Implementation in Specialty Crops. The project's overall goals are to increase IPM awareness and adoption in NJ by continuing to conduct annual advisory meetings with stakeholders, represent NJ on state and regional committees, respond to IPM-related inquires, and coordinate and report on state/institutional activities. The goals of the IPM Implementation in our new Specialty Crops emphasis area (in blueberries and tree fruit) are to integrate validated pest management research results into a delivery program, train growers and seasonal field scouts in pest monitoring methods, reduce OP & carbamate insecticide use, optimize the use of reduced risk practices, and reduce excessive use of fertilizers in blueberries and peaches.
