Our Mission

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Pacific Northwest Pest Alert Network website is to increase crop protection related communications and improve management decisions by fieldmen and growers when pest outbreaks occur. This website will be used as a communication tool to deliver accurate and timely pest outbreak information to the agriculture industry. We will also provide links to control information for pests identified in pest alert news items. The benefits of increased communication will provide for more judicious use of pesticides, reduced crop losses, and overall improved pest management.

WEBSITE POLICY STATEMENT

The Pacific Northwest Pest Alert Network will inform farmers about the status of pest outbreaks occurring in their area and thus enable them to increase field scouting or take other actions as deemed necessary. In addition to field scouting and documenting threshold levels, farmers now have another tool to help them make informed pest management decisions. The Pacific Northwest Pest Alert Network is not to be used as a substitute for current pest monitoring activities.

In order for the Pacific Northwest Pest Alert Network to be successful, we need broad participation from the agriculture industry. This includes farmers, industry field representatives, and government and university personnel. The more people that participate in the Pacific Northwest Pest Alert Network, the greater will be its value to the agriculture industry. We highly encourage all people associated with the agriculture industry in the Pacific Northwest to submit pest alert news items either by e-mail or telephone.
