Event Date

We are establishing a network of farms to share knowledge and data on the application and impact of IPM strategies with the aim to better understand the effectiveness of IPM approaches on farm yield and profitability, and support sustainable, productive systems with no pesticide inputs wasted. We’ve had some initial funding from Defra to design the network, and now we are moving into a pilot phase. 


We are hosting a webinar 14th November 14:00-15:30

In this webinar, we will outline the long term goals of IPM NET and the plan for the pilot, how to register your details, and establish links to the IPM Tool and Pest and Disease survey.

Participating farms will collect essential data to enable evaluation of the impact of IPM strategies on various farming aspects such as yield, profit, and pesticide applications.

As a member, you would receive a personalised IPM NET member report, have access to an annual review of the dataset and take part in discussion workshops on farm- and field-specific ideas to enhance IPM practices.

You will be invited to two in-person meetings; a kick-off meeting in early 2024 and an end of season conference to discuss results and ideas. 


Membership and conference attendance will be free of charge for IPM NET pilot members in the 2024/25 season.

Integrated Pest Management highlights the growth of a healthy crop with the least possible disruption to agro-ecosystems and encourages natural pest control mechanisms. IPM is one of the tools for low-pesticide-input pest management, and IPM must now be implemented by all professional agchem users.

IPM NET is a new initiative which aims to improve the practical understanding and application of integrated pest management (for pests, weeds and diseases) for farmers,  and inform policy design promoting IPM strategies.

IWM involves using numerous weed control methods to try and manage a weed problem sustainably. Whilst herbicides can still be used as part of an IWM approach, a major aim is to reduce reliance on them by also incorporating methods including, cultural, mechanical, biological, thermal and genetic control. A combination of such approaches can allow for optimal control of a specific weed problem. Related topics on FarmPEP include herbicides and herbicide resistance. You can also view the topic pages on grass weeds and broad-leaved weeds which provide examples of suitable control methods.
