Why is Integrated Pest Management sustainable agriculture?
"For farmers, IPM is good business. They don't want to pay for pesticide applications if they won't do any good" David Epstein, senior entomologist for USDA's office of Pest Management.
In IPM, everything is based on monitoring. IPM is about knowing the pest, knowing the plant and knowing the barriers of control. "It also takes into account that farmers are running a business so there are socio and economic conditions that fit into this problem." Epstein says.
Our IPM program includes the monitoring of the effectiveness of the pesticides we use via resistance testing by the University of Arkansas and continually rotating to the effective class to provide optimum control.
We rely on trained entomologists to assist in the monitoring and rotation of the pesticides in our IPM programs.

"Poultry operations should have control measures to prevent contact with and protect poultry from wild birds, their feces and their feathers as appropriate to the production system.
