The Kentucky Component of the Southern Region IPM Center

In cooperation with the Southern Region IPM Center, the Kentucky Pest Management Information Center serves as a source of information on pesticides and current pest management problems and issues of interest to Kentuckians. The Southern Region IPM Center located at North Carolina State University is one of four Regional Pest Management Centers developed by the USDA to provide information about commodities, pests and pest management practices, people and issues in the U.S. The Southern Region Pest Management Center and the Kentucky Pest Management Center work in partnership with stakeholders from agricultural, urban and rural settings to identify and address priorities for research, education and outreach for Kentucky and the southern region.
