The Regional Integrated Pest Management Innovation Lab for East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda) is developing a shared IPM strategy to improve the productivity of higher value marketed horticultural crops in the region using a specialized program that is dedicated to ecologically-based IPM research on horticultural crops. Ecological IPM is an approach to pest management that seeks to give farmers an alternative, more environmentally-friendly path for sustaining high agricultural productivity.

The IPM CRSP will be implemented by a consortium of U.S. and East African institutions, with The Ohio State University (OSU) serving as the lead university and Virginia Tech as the management entity. A coordinating unit (CU) will be headquartered at Makerere University Faculty of Agriculture in Uganda and include member representatives from each participating nation. It will co-ordinate IPM research, training, extension and technology dissemination activities in the region.


To develop a specialized, ecologically based IPM research program focused on priority pest constraints of selected higher value marketed horticultural crops.
