  Document HLA-6710 Integrated Pest Management in Commercial Greenhouses: An Overview of Principles and Practices

IPM is a multi-dimensional approach to pest control. It requires understanding of the greenhouse as an entire unit, an ecosystem unto itself. This ecosystem must be kept in balance. Temperature, relative humidity, and both pest and biocontrol agent populations must all be monitored. Strict sanitation must be maintained.

Maintaining this balance is the key to successful IPM programs. Revised April 2013.
