BILL NUMBER:S2775

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to providing
the definition of
integrated pest management

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA:
This bill defines integrated pest management to provide a basis of
understanding and common understanding of the practice and intention.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Adds new subdivision 27-a to section 33-0101 of the Environmental
Conservation Law to define integrated pest management as a
"systematic approach to managing pests that utilizes a diversity of
management options to minimize health, environmental and economic
risks and impacts. These options may include biological, cultural,
physical and chemical tools to prevent pest infestations or reduce
them to acceptable levels.

JUSTIFICATION:
Although integrated pest management (IPM) is often touted as a means
of reducing pesticide usage, New York State lacks a clear definition
of what this actually means. This legislation would define IPM thus
providing a clear and unified starting point for future development
and regulation. This definition was created in consultation with
Cornell University's NYS IPM Program and representatives of other
industry sectors.
The biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools provided for in
the definition are a starting point which infer a level of
understanding regarding the various options available to manage pest
infestations.
This level of knowledge or understanding may require an educational
element to be obtained by individuals or organizations that employ an
IPM system.
