Abstract

Food security and IPM are best served by a national infrastructure of private and public professionals who routinely monitor crop health and pest incidence and then translate this knowledge to a shared platform enabling rapid dissemination of mitigation measures to limit crop loss. The Integrated Pest Information Platform for Extension and Education (iPiPE) provides such an infrastructure with cyber-age tools, information products, and expert commentary for detection and management of endemic, new, and exotic pests that threaten U.S. crops. By categorizing pests, data, and users, it enables sharing of observations while protecting the privacy of participating individuals, companies, and government agencies. The iPiPE incentivizes growers and consultants to submit observations on important pests by providing tools and information for timely management decision making. It is composed of a growing number of Crop-Pest Programs. Located across the nation and coordinated by Extension professionals, each Crop-Pest Programs addresses a variety of crops and pests while providing undergraduate students with hands-on extension and diagnostic experiences. The iPiPE was initiated in 2010, and received funding to expand as a Cooperative Agricultural Program (CAP) from the USDA AFRI Food Security Challenge Area in 2015. An important iPiPE Cooperative Agricultural Program goal is to catalyze and support a national network of similar IT platforms operated by various organizations, focused on providing information to enhance IPM and food security. An important outcome will be a national infrastructure for sharing pest observations in near real-time and for archiving them in a national depository to enable future research using geographically extensive, multiyear databases.
