In 2017, a short survey was conducted in the UK and Ireland to establish baselines for the perception and adoption of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies. The survey targeted a representative sample of arable farmers from each country. The survey asked for information on uptake of specific IPM practices, the farm, the farmer and their farm business. Preliminary data suggests that there are some growers who are not familiar with the term IPM, despite them being aware of, and adopting, various IPM practices on their farms. This survey is part of a wider study aimed at improving farmer awareness and adoption of IPM in the UK and Ireland.
