INTRODUCTION

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is defined as a pest management system that utilizes all suitable techniques in a total management system with the intent of preventing pests from reaching unacceptable levels or to reduce an existing population to an acceptable level.

IPM is based on taking preventive measures, monitoring the crop or site for the level of the pests, assessing the potential for pest damage, and choosing appropriate actions. Many different tactics may be available, including cultural practices, biological control agents, pesticides, pest-resistant varieties, mechanical methods and physical barriers. In IPM, these tactics may be combined into a plan that best suits the particular situation. It is a comprehensive approach dedicated to removing causes rather than just treating symptoms. This five day training course is intended to guide farmers on pest eradication using environmentally friendly means to yield improved farm results.
