A list of groups that are working in conjunction with the NRCS to promote IPM. To add your group, please contact us.

NRCS & IPM Working Group
The NRCS & IPM working group aims to increase IPM adoption in the North Central region through participation in conservation programs administered through the Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS). The group continues to advance the objectives of the former IPM CAP national working group by increasing farmer and consultant adoption of Conservation Activity Plans (CAPs), recruiting and training IPM-qualified technical service providers (TSPs), establishing realistic cost-share rates and developing support tools to make the CAPs process as efficient as possible. Other objectives include gathering resources for growers to identify IPM tools for addressing NRCS high-priority conservation concerns and increasing grower participation in market-based programs such as Food Alliance and soil, air, and water quality credit trading programs. This group is coordinated by IPM Institute staff and consists of university extension, NRCS, SARE, US EPA Strategic Ag Initiative, state-led agencies, conservation districts, IPM3 Training Consortium, Certified Crop Advisors, National Alliance of Independent Crop Consultants and CSREES.

Northeast Vegetable IPM Working Group
This group formed in December 2005 to meet with NRCS representatives to explore how the two groups can work together.  An outcome of the meeting was a commitment to construct a website to inform the public about current collaborative efforts between the groups.  This site, http://northeastipm.org/nrcs.cfm, offers a side-by-side comparison to visually show how close the NE IPM Center and the NRCS are working toward the same objectives. 
The goals of both the NE IPM Center and the NRCS are to help land users pose the least possible risk to the environment through developing integrated resource management systems, which includes learning new technology, biology and environmental information.  Resources include how to practice pest management, articles and presentations on how to work with NRCS incentive programs, and successful NRCS/IPM partnership stories.
