IPM is defined by the American Phytopathology Society as:
“A sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools in a way that minimizes economic, health and environmental risks”.


• To summarize available IPM strategies relevant for each tobacco pest and disease.
• To produce a document for agronomists & farmers,
    ◦ structured by disease / pest
    ◦ providing a common outline framework based on relevant IPM methods

This document will be available on the CORESTA website in pdf format.


• The taskforce has been unable to complete the final report by the original deadline. Much of the initial work has been completed, but there are still chapters outstanding. We have posted the document with some blank chapters, which we hope to complete soon.
