2009 Annual Report

UC Statewide IPM Program

Grants programs update

After funding 451 research grants since 1980, the UC IPM Research Grants Program is being redirected to support the new UC ANR initiative on endemic and invasive pests and diseases. The program sponsored projects that developed practical solutions to agricultural and urban pest problems. 

USDA funding for the UC Exotic/Invasive Pests and Diseases Research Program ended in August. Since 2001, the program sponsored 101 projects targeting exotic and invasive species that threaten managed and natural ecosystems in California. Although the program has ended, ANR leaders are optimistic about the possibility of additional funding to support further work in this critical area.

The second year of the UC Extension IPM Demonstration Grants Program, which UC IPM also administers, funded six projects in 2009, bringing the total to 15. The program is designed to bridge the gap in the research-extension continuum by taking results from research sites on UC campuses, at research centers, and in counties then demonstrating them in new locations and situations.
