Another word for pest management | Opinion and comment

Donna Palmer

In July we talked about Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as an approach to preventing pests in the garden before they become a problem. There should be three things (the disease triangle): the host plant, the conditions needed to support the pest/pathogen, and the pest/pathogen itself. If management and prevention practices eliminate any of these three things – there is no problem with pests.

The basic philosophy of this approach is data collection and garden management to reduce pest/threat in line with the growing garden ecosystem.
