Who We Are
A program of Cornell University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) and Cornell Cooperative Extension, we combine the world-class research of the nation’s most prestigious land grant university with the home-grown extension and outreach New Yorker’s have relied on for decades to bring proven and accessible solutions to pest problems to growers and communities.
Driven by Five Pillars, NYSIPM works to:
- Rebuild ecological resilience through safe and sustainable tools and strategies
- Develop innovative digital tools through a commitment to digital IPM
- Serve as a trusted authority on invasive species prevention and management
- Provide outreach and prevention strategies on pests of public health importance to at-risk communities
- Make essential connections with all New Yorkers, including focused education and outreach with underserved and marginalized communities
We develop sustainable ways to manage pests and help people to use methods that minimize environmental, health, and economic risks.
