Developing the IMPACT tools

Armed with an improved understanding of pest incidence and severity, the IMPACT team will use its expertise to test and deliver sustainable solutions, based on use of microbial control agents.

These will provide the ‘contents’ of an Integrated Pest Management Toolbox with precise targeting of pests and optimal use of one or more pest management techniques.

Development will be through laboratory and field experimentation as well as field trials and technology demonstrations to test and prove the components of the IPM Toolbox.

Ultimately, this will enable replacement of insecticides with sustainable and environmentally sound management practices for key pests.
