Integrated Nursery Pest Management

Integrated nursery pest management (INPM) is the most practical and ecologically sound approach for control of nursery pests because it is integrated with all other nursery management procedures. As a result, nursery managers are not limited to fighting damaging pest "fires" that should not have been ignited in the first place. INPM is accomplished through coordinated tactics that prevent pest damage from reaching economically damaging proportions while protecting the environment from potential hazards. The tactics may be classed as preventive, cultural, chemical, and biological. They are selected to achieve pest management goals in the most practical manner.
