Design of IPM scouting protocols

Real IPM offers an IPM field skills course whereby scouting protocol is designed that can be used in monitoring pests and disease levels as well as the beneficial insects in the crop.

Contact us for advice on the design of crop specific IPM scouting methods for fruit, flower and vegetable crops. This service can either be a paper-based system or a computerised system, where scouting data is analysed electronically and produces weekly update graphs on the progress achieved to date in key performance areas, such as the ratio of beneficial to pest and the average number of pest per plant.
