Integrated Pest Management: Reducing pesticide use in farms.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plays a key role in delivering the SUD, as part of a holistic approach to agro-ecosystem management .
The sustainable use of pesticides is required across Europe under the EU’s Sustainable Use Directive (SUD), which aims to reduce the exposure to and impact of pesticides on people and the environment
. The European Commission has funded a series of work to develop and promote IPM resources, including IPM Decisions (H2020 project 817617) and IPMWORKS (H2020 101000339), running until 2024.
