Integrated pest management (IPM) in greenhouse and other protected environments

Code: 9781838799502
Margaret Skinner, Cheryl Frank Sullivan and Bruce L. Parker, University of Vermont, USA

Chapter synopsis: Production in greenhouses, high tunnels, and other protected environments is expanding worldwide to allow for more intensive and continual cultivation to mitigate the effects of climate change. Growers want to create conditions that are ideal for the plants to thrive, but these are often the same ones that favor insects and other arthropod pests, requiring the implementation of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in greenhouses. The practices and organisms used for IPM in greenhouses and high tunnels are unique and specific to the target pest, geographical location, and crop. This chapter describes the process of scouting for both pests and beneficials in the greenhouse environment, before discussing plant-mediated IPM systems (including a case study from the Northeastern USA). The chapter addresses the realities of IPM in the developing world as well as other novel IPM practices and future developments. Finally, the chapter provides guidance on further reading in this area.
