Integrated Pest Management Program

Integrated Pest Management, or IPM, is a pest control strategy that combines the use of biological, cultural, mechanical (physical) and chemical procedures in ways that attempt to minimize health and environmental risks and economic loss when controlling pests.

The IPM Program promotes, through outreach and funding, when available, a sustainable approach to managing pests and "to bring about the broadest possible application of the principles of integrated pest management to agriculture, horticulture, arboriculture, landscape and building maintenance, and any other areas in which economic poisons are employed (RSA 420:50)." The New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food, Division of Pesticide Control, as the legally mandated agency ensuring the safe, scientific, and proper use of pesticides, administrates the IPM Program and the grant funding associated with it. The grant application process is open to all residents of New Hampshire including citizens from the private sector, extension offices, trade organizations, corporate organizations, and government agencies who wish to foster IPM projects.
