Pecan ipmPIPE
The Pest Information Platform for Extension and Education (PIPE) began as a USDA-initiated Internet-based response to the discovery of soybean rust in 2005 in Louisiana.  The mission of the Belt-wide Pecan ipmPIPE Program is regional participation in a dynamic, integrated national system that provides useful, reliable information and tools for IPM practitioners throughout the "pecan belt," the principal states where at least some commercial pecans are grown. Our vision is to develop the ipmPIPE to help maximize economic returns, and improve social welfare and environmental health by promotion of efficient and coordinated IPM decision support systems.
