Integrated Pest Management

Special form of plant protection in agriculture with the inclusion or integration of various measures. By means of a well-coordinated combination of economically, ecologically and toxicologically suitable methods, high-quality products are to be produced in an economically justifiable manner while conserving resources and preserving biodiversity (species diversity). The overriding goal is to intervene as little and as gently as possible in the ecological balance. There are also the terms IP (Integrated Production/Plant Protection) and/or KIP (Controlled Integrated Production) and colloquially also the definitionally imprecise terms near-natural or environmentally friendly viticulture. Internationally, the term IPM (Integrated Pest Management) is commonly used. Integrated Viticulture is a method for the economic production of high quality grapes, wine and other grape products. By taking an overall view of the "vineyard ecosystem", all measures were included in Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
