Integrated pest management (IPM) in UK crop production – Agronomists’ Conference 2021

What it is IPM? How can it be measured? How should it be encouraged? This presentation explored the uptake of IPM in UK cropping systems. It also looked at the barriers to adoption and how economic incentives may be required to accelerate its uptake.
