Facilitating adoption of IPM through a participatory approach with local advisors and industry
Client: Horticulture Innovation Australia Limited
Project partner: AUSVEG SA
Project delivery period: 2016-2019
This project aims to demonstrate IPM in commercial vegetable crops in order to give advisors (chemical resellers as well as independent pest management advisors) more confidence in IPM. Angelica Cameron and Paul Horne from IPM Technologies are running initial theory training sessions and then in-field demonstrations on the farms of collaborating growers. These activities are backed up by regular phone and email support as required for each advisor or farmer, to help them with the IPM decision-making process week-by-week.
