BILL NUMBER:S2203

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.
