Grants and Contracts Details
A primary objective of the Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey (CAPS) program is to safeguard our nation’s food and environmental security from exotic pests that threaten our production and ecological systems. Funds for this project will support a state survey coordinator to accomplish the following objectives: • Coordinate Kentucky’s CAPS program, the State CAPS Committee, and act as liaison with the Kentucky PPQ Office. • Work with other state, county, federal, and public entities, as opportunities arise, to manage cooperative pest programs which will protect our food production and natural resources from exotic pests. • Ensure quality and timeliness of entry of survey-generated data into approved databases. • Produce fact sheets, educational material, and pest distribution maps for pests as needed. • Distribute educational materials and share communications with state and federal entities, university Cooperative Extension Services, the agricultural community, and the public as appropriate. • Support the public and agricultural industry with speaking engagements, trade show booths, and Kentucky CAPS web page and Facebook page maintenance. • Conduct and manage pest detection surveys (see following pages for descriptions).
