THIS WEEK IN FOOD NEWS

IFC practices

These farmers are building a minimal-pesticide future.

Many farming practices are talked about in the food media, but one phrase is often overlooked: integrated pest management. IPM is a tool that enables farmers to take better care of their land and their livelihoods.

It focuses on long-term prevention of pests or their damage by managing the ecosystem as a whole. If IPM principles can be embraced on a widespread scale, we’d see a food production system that would measure up as having a far lighter load on the environment than if certified organic agriculture were adopted to the same scale.

Cheers,
The WSCSA Core Committee
