Formally document the current pest management challenges and critical needs within the industry, and to support a prioritized plan for research, extension, and regulatory support in meeting these needs.
With the Northwest Nursery Crop Research Center (NNCRC) as an advisory body, develop a workgroup of Oregon nursery industry representatives. With this group, identify an appropriate scope, and complete an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Strategic Plan to be published through Oregon State University Extension and available to USDA and EPA through the National IPM Database. Work with Pacific Northwest research and extension faculty to support targeted research and education follow-up based on the critical needs identified through the IPM strategic planning process.
