The author is pleased to bring you their latest report which explores how integrated pest management (IPM) policies and strategies are being implemented across different countries and regions.

It also discusses the drivers and barriers to IPM adoption and the pesticides used. Detailed within are government IPM policies, the companies actively involved in the IPM segment, and the trends in R&D.
