The National Invertebrate Pest Initiative (NIPI) brings together scientists from state government departments, universities, farmer groups and CSIRO to address pest management issues in the Australian grains industry.

It is supported by growers and the Australian Federal Government through the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC). We aim to support the grains industry in adopting more sustainable approaches to invertebrate pest management.
