Take Action to Support Ag IPM

GREAT NEWS! The NY Farm Bureau has included us on their e-advocacy site—making it very easy for you and others to voice your support for restoring Agricultural IPM funding to previous levels.

Farmers have relied upon Integrated Pest Management (IPM), for decades.  IPM allows farmers to target pests and diseases in an efficient, profitable, and environmentally sensitive manner by utilizing the best and latest innovations in research and extension.  The IPM program received a 50% funding cut in 2010, and is now seeking a return to prior year’s budgets.  Please take a moment to support this important program in the 2015-16 State Budget.

Please help! Simply go to the Farm Bureau’s Action Alert website, select the delivery method, fill in your contact information, and submit—it’s that easy.
