In 1991 the Pesticide Management Branch of the B.C. Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks embarked on a new policy direction to promote integrated pest management (IPM) and reduced pesticide use in the province. Among the projects started in 1991 was a survey of the agricultural pest management consultants in the province delivering UPM advice to growers. The objectives of this study were to determine:
1. Crops and area under IPM monitoring programs in 1991.
2. Changes in pesticide use under IPM monitoring programs.
3. Monitoring methods and controls used in IPM programs.
4. Benefits to growers of IPM programs.
5. Subjects requiring further research and development.
6. Areas where Pesticide Management Program could provide assistance.
