Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strives to achieve the development of healthy crops with minimal disruption to agroecosystems, and the promotion of natural pest control mechanisms.

Directive 2009/128/EC of the European Parliament and the Council establishes the framework for Community action to achieve a sustainable use of pesticides by reducing the risks and effects of their use on human health and the environment, and promoting Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and alternative non-chemical plant health control systems, including Biological and Biotechnical Pest Control methods. In Spanish legislation, its transcription applies through Royal Decree 1311/2012 of 14 September and the National Action Plan (NAP).

In this intervention, which Tragsatec has carried out since 2006, the following activities are developed:

-Development of standards and specific crop guidelines: Development of drafts for 15 "Specific Technical Standards for Identification of National Integrated Production Guarantee" in different crops and "Integrated Pest Management Guidelines."
-Introduction of new control techniques: Integrate Plan for the control of insect virus vectors in a range of crops. Implementation of new techniques for pest control by releasing natural enemies.
-Development of a register of producers and mapping of production areas, management of the distribution of natural enemies and monitoring of major pests and natural enemies of these crops.
-Designing strategies to fight the emergence of new pests
-Audits on the implementation of the IPM
