Michigan’s green industry encompasses nursery plant production, landscaping and lawn care, athletic field and golf course turf management, and more. Our resources are grouped through the links in the navigation at left.
Featured resources: Correctly identifying the pest is the first step in IPM problem-solving. Our pocket-sized scouting guides and their related web pages feature common diseases, insect pests and beneficial species. Those for the green industry include guides for:
- IPM Scouting in herbaceous perennials
- IPM Scouting in woody landscape plants
- Identifying weeds in nurseries and landscapes
- Identifying natural enemies that offer you biological control.
The MSU IPM Program maintains this site as an access point to pest management information at MSU. The IPM Program is administered within the Department of Entomology, fueled by research from the AgBioResearch, delivered to citizens through MSU Extension, and proud to be a part of Project GREEEN.
