Our mission is to provide an efficient, user-friendly and economically sustainable tool for
farmers, advisors, program managers, policy makers and others to fully evaluate pesticide
options for impacts on health, environment and economics, and to improve the quality and
quantity of IPM by facilitating implementation of practices that prevent and minimize pest
pressure, and mitigate the impact of pesticide applications.
By “quantity” of IPM, we mean increasing the numbers of growers and pest managers
practicing IPM, as well as the land area managed under IPM. Increasing the “quality” of IPM
means progressing along the IPM continuum toward prevention-based systems.
In fulfilling our mission, we will assist NRCS in achieving its resource protection goals on an
ongoing basis. In sustaining our tool financially, we will strive to provide broad access at no
charge to all users for basic functions. We will consider ability to pay including providing no or
low-cost access for users developing countries.
