IPM Florida Releases DVD of Successful IPM Projects

The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Florida Group, which is supported by NIFA, has released a 90-minute DVD of successful IPM projects focusing on how different methods of insect control impact agriculture, community and natural areas. This newly released disk is titled “Integrated Pest Management in Florida.” IPM Florida’s Jennifer Gillett and Norm Leppla present fundamental IPM knowledge and practices by exhibiting examples of successful IPM projects in 20 clear and concise 2- to 3-minute segments. This DVD was designed as an educational tool and is appropriate for most audiences.

The contents panel on the back cover of the disk contains a legend that indicates the specific emphasis of each segment. “Integrated Pest Management in Florida” emphasizes IPM projects’ practices of scouting and biological, chemical, cultural, and mechanical control methods.

The three specific categories of agriculture, communities, and natural areas easily break the IPM content into well-defined categories, allowing both the IPM novice and the experienced scientist to feel comfortable navigating the disk while searching for specific information on an array IPM interests and methods.

“Integrated Pest Management in Florida” DVD disks are available through IPM Florida by contacting Jennifer Gillett.
