In our ongoing relationship with Agrilinks, InnovATE has developed a new feature, the Ag Educator’s Corner. This series of monthly blog posts, called ” The Ag Educators’ Corner,” provides insight, practical tips, and stories by and for agricultural educators.

In our first post, For Agricultural Educators, From Agricultural Educators, they highlight their experience teaching Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to secondary school students in Guatemala.

In Melanie’s own words, “I’ve never seen so many people this excited about IPM!” Read more on Agrilinks and check out the series each month!
