Nebraska EIP project highlights (Crops, Pollinators, Housing and School IPM)
The Nebraska Extension Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program is a statewide program involving multiple extension specialists and educators with expertise in entomology, plant pathology, weed science and agronomy. The current EIP project addresses the following areas:
IPM implementation in agronomic crops, IPM for pollinator health, IPM training and implementation in housing, IPM training and implementation in schools and coordination.

These areas were chosen based on stakeholder feedback and the existence of faculty expertise within Nebraska Extension. The webinar will provide an overview of recent programming and impacts of this project.
