Colloquium: Integrated Pest Management for Vegetable Crops in the Tropics

This meeting will provide an opportunity to learn how an international, multidisciplinary group of specialists helps farmers grow healthier vegetable crops via IPM components and packages in different tropical regions of the world. We’ve developed a program featuring a group of speakers who will present their work on IPM package development and implementation.
The Integrated Pest Management Innovation Lab (IPM IL, formerly the IPM CRSP), funded by USAID, addresses horticultural crop issues faced by farmers in sixteen developing countries in six different regions of the tropical world. The program collaborates with scientists, researchers, students, extension officers, and development practitioners at universities, NGOs, and government entities in the United States and around the world. In this colloquium, an international group of scientists will discuss program developments and strategies. Country-specific presentations will focus on Bangladesh, Ecuador, Ghana, Honduras, India, and Kenya, while additional presentations will focus on techniques developed for specific crops and diseases: antagonistic fungi, grafting, a host-free period, and roguing.
