Community Education & Outreach to Increase Awareness and Adoption of Landscape IPM Practices in support of the Requirements of the NYS Pesticide Notification Law
This project was undertaken in response to County consideration of the adoption of the NYS Pesticide Notification Law. County officials felt that additional information and public education was needed. Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County assumed leadership for outreach efforts and applied for Community IPM funds to support the work. The goal of this project was to use the NYS Pesticide Notification Law as a timely opportunity to teach IPM principles and practices to turf and landscape industry professionals, garden center staff, Master Gardener volunteers, and the general public using a variety of outreach methods including workshops, field days, meetings, newspaper and radio.
