In the past year, Hawaii IPM has increased awareness in the state by educating approximately 399 agricultural producers through extension programs and technology transfer projects. Of that total, 135 agricultural producers have expressed interest in adopting recommended IPM management practices. After final surveys and interviews were conducted, a total of 48 agricultural producers have adopted IPM management practices in a year's time. We expect this number to increase. Data cited are based on actual figures obtained from IPM certification and other project reports that are prepared by extension faculty; exit surveys from educational programs; interviews with grower volunteers and other collaborators.
