The Michigan State University Organic Pest Management Laboratory is run by Dr. Matt Grieshop and conducts research, teaching and extension in a variety of Michigan and Great Lakes agricultural commodities. Our overall goal is to provide economically viable pest management tactics for organic farming systems designed through a better understanding of agroecosystem dynamics, pest natural history, and behavior. We are particularly interested in pest management systems where off farm inputs are minimized and pest management services are derived from system components that provide multiple benefits (e.g., pollination services, nutrient management, additional salable products).

Although directly affiliated with the Department of Entomology, the OPM lab conducts collaborative research with labs in the MSU departments of Plant, Soil and Microbial Sciences; Horticulture; and Animal Science.
