Integrated Pest Management

Routine use of broad-spectrum insecticides can result in insecticides being applied unnecessarily, the enhanced development of insecticide resistance and the loss of beneficial insects. This in turn can lead to pest outbreaks and increased dependence on insecticides. Integrated pest management (IPM) offers an opportunity to move away from a routine broad-spectrum insecticide-based approach to pest management.

To meet these requirements while achieving an economically viable livelihood arable farmers have tended to invest in heavily mechanised high input crop production systems for which the maintenance of strong soil fertility is critical.
