Created By: Cornell Botanic Gardens

Point of Interest Details

The Integrated Pest Management approach, first created by scientists at Cornell in the mid-1970s to reduce pesticide use on agricultural crops, involves multiple non-chemical techniques for controlling pests and considers using pesticides only when all other approaches are not available or appropriate. Botanic Garden staff integrate a range of biological, organic, cultural, mechanical, and chemical options to prevent, monitor and manage pest problems.
