Michigan agriculture is exceptionally diverse and crucial to the economy. Michigan boasts more than 300 commodities contributing an estimated $104 billion dollars to the state’s economy annually. The agri-food system accounts for an estimated 805,000 jobs, representing more than 20% of the state’s workforce. Michigan farms and their economic output are at risk from rapidly evolving pest challenges including invasive pests, climate change, consumer perceptions, pesticide resistance, and regulatory challenges. The objectives of the MSU CPPM project respond to IPM priorities identified by Michigan practitioners, guided by a stakeholder alliance and prioritized by the IPM Roadmap. It addresses the CPPM focus areas of plant protection tools and tactics and IPM for sustainable communities. The MSU EIP grant is an Extension-led effort to increase agriculture and community stakeholder awareness, knowledge and adoption of IPM practices and tools through traditional and novel outreach efforts.
