EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State University’s pest management programs are getting a boost from the federal government.

U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan recently commended the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s announcement that the school’s work is getting more than $380,000 from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s Crop Protection and Pest Management program.

The funding supports projects that address high priority pest management challenges though coordinated efforts with state and regional partners.

The East Lansing school is getting two awards under program. The money will support projects to provide training and educational opportunities for Michigan’s pest managers and develop environmentally friendly ways to combat pests in asparagus production.
