Integrated Plant Protection Center, Oregon State University
Data Center Description
The Integrated Plant Protection Center (IPPC) is organized to emphasize strong interdisciplinary collaboration among the crop protection disciplines of entomology, weed science, plant pathology, and pesticide chemistry/toxicology, as well as related fields of crop science, horticulture, range management, and forestry. IPPC is designed to facilitate delivery of information through a variety of training programs in close conjunction with extension faculty. Its staff actively participates in ongoing collaborative agroecological crop protection research.
IPPC, under its current mandate, expands both the programmatic and geographic scope of its long-running predecessor organization, the International Plant Protection Center, chartered at Oregon State University in 1969.
The new IPPC functions as both a program facilitator and originator interacting and collaborating with many institutions, organizations, and individuals. The Center continues to maintain productive links with the 13-member Consortium for International Crop Protection (CICP) and to serve as the Secretariat for the International Weed Science Society.
