New Members IPMG website launched

With sustainable management as its core objective, the IPMG continues to encourage best practice integrated pest management (IPM) strategies for the whole Bluegum plantation industry.

One way to encourage good IPM practices is to facilitate the availability of research and information regarding pests and diseases. To this end, in addition to its public website, the IPMG recently launched a members’ website which aims to become a one-stop portal for foresters to access a variety of information and services including:

  • current and past reports
  • publications and conference presentations
  • current best-practice pest and disease management notes
  • newsletters
  • minutes form executive
  • access to regional plantation health databases.

For further information, eligible members may contact Francisco (Paco) Tovar or simply register for access to the site at http://www.plantationhealth.com.au/members.php.
