Pest Management Strategic Plan for Tomato in the Southeast

July 2018 update: The Pest Management Strategic Plan for Tomato in the Southeast has been published! You can find it at the National IPM Center website or just click here. Background information on PMSPs are below. If you are interested in updating a PMSP, contact your regional IPM Center.

The Pest Management Strategic Plan (PMSP) for Tomato in the Southeast outlines priorities for research, regulation, and outreach to guide activities such as EPA registration of pesticides, government and other agencies allocation of funds for research, scientists in their research endeavors, and other activities related to solving pest management issues. The most recent version (2007) is critically out of date as practices and pests have changed since that time. Growers, industry representatives, specialists, regulators, and processors are strongly encouraged to participate in this event to update this important document. States included in this workshop: MS, AL, AR, GA, FL, SC, NC, TN, KY, VA. Limited funding is available upon request in order to encourage attendance. Contact Inga Meadows ( for more information.
