KNOWLEDGE

What is IPM and why is it important? 

 

Integrated Pest Management is a decision-making process that involves environmentally sustainable, economically sound and efficient practices that are implemented using biological, chemical and cultural methods for long-term prevention of crop-damaging pests. Monitoring, identification and documentation are key processes in developing the most effective treatment program and establishing data trends.

 

Biological Practices: Use of predatory (beneficial) insects that target and eradicate pests.

 

Chemical Practices: Use of government regulated (bio)fungicides, insecticides, horticultural oils and insecticidal soaps to control pest and pathogenic infestations. (Please refer to your respective Agency for a list of allowable chemicals for use on cannabis ie. Health Canada PMRA, United States EPA)

 

Cultural Practices: Processes that interrupt or prevent the life cycle of pests. Some methods include starting with certifiable clean seed or clones, choosing resistant strains, use of sticky traps, maintaining a clean environment are a few examples.
