The New Pest, Production and Profitability Program: Triple P 2004
Ganoe, Kevin; Wise, Ken
The Pest, Production and Profitability (Triple-P) program was designed to be an extension of the traditional TAg program. The purpose of the (Triple-P) program is to provide past TAg participants with more in-depth information about IPM and ICM. As with a TAg team a Triple-P team would meet at different farms every 2 to 3 weeks to discuss pest and crop management issues for that time of the season. The Triple-P team consisted of 6 field crop producers in Herkimer, Otsego, Montgomery and Hamilton Counties. We conducted 6 meeting and discussed a wide range of topics relative to field corn, alfalfa, and forage grasses. The growers in this Triple-P team own and manage 2,500 acres of corn, alfalfa, grasses, soybeans and other field crops. There is the potential to implement the IPM and ICM practices taught to these acres of field crops in their farming systems.
