[EXPAND What’s a BioIPM Workbook?]
The BioIPM Workbooks are intended as a practical tool for growers’ use throughout the entire production cycle, and will help growers learn how to move toward a more biologically-based production system that is ecologically sound and economically profitable. They are organized seasonally to provide a comprehensive, year-round self-assessment tool and reference on pest management and cultural practices of specific production systems. The workbooks are organized into five chapters– preplant, planting, in-season, harvest/postharvest, and an appendix with individual pest profiles. Each chapter is further divided into pertinent topic sections with self-assessment statements followed by information on standard recommended practices as well as advancements to a biointensive production system.[/EXPAND]
