A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

The University of Alaska has three separate integrated pest management plans. The first is the Facilities Services sustainable IPM which covers the greenhouse and all the vegetable and flower beds on campus. The second plan is the IPM for the Georgeson Botanical Garden (GBG). This plan covers the entire GBG. The final plan is the UAF Invasive Plants Management Plan. This plan is an IPM that covers the entire campus and focuses on the removal of invasive plant species, as well as promoting a more sustainable and enjoyable campus landscape. Some highlights of these plans include:
"Integrated Pest Management and organic fertilizers are used at the Facilities Services Greenhouse."

"UAF banned all pesticide use in greenhouses and limits pesticide use to spot spraying in campus lawn areas."

"Facilities Services created a sustainable IPM and fertilizer operations manual for campus greenhouse and flower and vegetable beds."
