IPM at The University of Arizona

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) activities at the University of Arizona represent an important aspect of our service to clientele in agricultural, urban and natural settings. The IPM Programs represented in the Arizona Pest Management Center have been developed over time in response to clients' needs, and continue to evolve to address new challenges as they arise.

A program represents a staffed, ongoing effort in a given area of applied research and organized outreach to achieve identified goals or outcomes in implementation and education. A project is defined as a short-term applied research and/or extension activity designed to address a specific question or need.

This page provides information about currently funded IPM projects of University of Arizona faculty and collaborating partners.


IPM Program Funding

Starting in FY 2008-2009, Federal IPM 3(d) programs have shifted from formula funding to a new competitive Extension Integrated Pest Management (EIPM) grant program, that encompasses Extension programmatic funding for IPM in agricultural, urban and natural settings. The IPM Coordinating Committee and several faculty team leaders worked collaboratively to develop a strategic plan for statewide IPM programming and submitted proposals in 2009 and 2010. In 2009, our one-year proposal was funded for $181,000. In 2010, our three-year proposal was funded for $525,000.


Intramural Projects

FY 2010 Pesticide Safety Education Program (PSEP) Projects

The Pesticide Safety Education Program (PSEP) supports CE faculty efforts related to developing and/or delivering pesticide safety education to clientele throughout the state of Arizona. APMC PSEP projects are funded with Federal PSEP monies. UA faculty members submitted proposals to the IPM Coordinating Committee in response to a request for proposals (RFP). In 2010, $23,276 was awarded for PSEP projects. An additional $15,000 from EPA Region 9 is expected to be available to supplement project funding to a total of $38,276.

Externally Funded IPM Projects

While intramurally-funded IPM projects are important, they represent only a fraction of all IPM projects at UA. Faculty members also develop projects through partnerships with commodity groups, industry, and state and federal agencies, with federal grants making up the largest portion of funded IPM projects.
