Integrated Pest Management Plans

Rockingham County has seen a tremendous increase in local farming over the last decade. This has provided local jobs, high quality local farm products, increased local food security, and is an income producing alternative to development that helps preserve the rural character of our county. With this rise in local agriculture has also come an increase in pesticide use. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) takes a common sense approach to pest control by considering pests life cycles, economic impact thresholds, pest monitoring, and both chemical and mechanical approaches. The RCCD provides Integrated Pest Management Plans for interested Farms. Please contact us for more details
