General and Crop Specific IP Guidelines

The overall aim of IOBC guidelines on Integrated Production is to provide inspiration for a consistent and integral application of Integrated Production principles in different production systems. These guidelines offer a framework for the formulation of regional or national guidelines and standards and facilitate harmonization of these concepts and guidelines at an international level.

There are three levels in the guidelines. They belong together and should be considered integrally.

All guidelines are published on this IOBC-WPRS website and are available for free download in the shop for ePublications. The IOBC Commission on IP guidelines is responsible for these publications. They are elaborated with the help of the IOBC Community notably the members of the different working and study groups of the IOBC-WPRS and/or ad hoc expert panels (see references in the editor lists of each publication). The different publications are updated regularly.

The Commission thanks all members of the IOBC-WPRS Executive Committee and Council for their constructive co-operation and support during the preparation and final approval of IP & IPM web pages.
