Joe LaForest, Southern IPM Center, University of Georgia
Digital resources to support implementation and adoption of IPM

The Regional IPM Centers were created to facilitate the flow of resources and information in integrated pest management on a regional basis.  The Southern IPM Center has many different digital products and services that aid this goal. While hosted in the south, they are available for use in all other regions including the Northeast. This seminar will explore the available resources for pest reporting, organizing digital content, and enabling effective communication with stakeholders. It will also highlight programs currently utilizing these tools and how others may participate.
