Integrated Pest Management technologies in mango from flowering to harvesting were demonstrated by Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK), Tumkur through Frontline Demonstrations (FLDs) in the selected mango growers orchards from 2016-17 to 2018-19. The results of the demonstrations of IPM technologies indicated the reduction in mean number of leaf hoppers infestation per panicle (0.86), fruits damage by fruit flies (5.0%) and low incidence of powdery mildew (score 0.93) compared to farmers practice (score 2.70). These three parameters are known to impact mainly the mango yield. The average tonnage increase in mango fruit yield per hectare in demo plots was 9.43 (37.76%) over farmers practice. The variation in the per cent increase in yield was due to adoption of integrated pest management practices by the growers as demonstrated by the KVK. Adoption of IPM technologies by the growers resulted in higher net returns of Rs. 1, 67,333 / ha as against the farmers practice (Rs. 80,400/ha). Further, extension activities like, training, group discussion meetings, extension literature distribution, news coverage about integrated crop management practices in mango to create awareness and knowledge of mango growers about various improved technologies. The demonstrated technologies proved to be highly remunerative compared to the existing farmers practice and on-farm contract for mango growers of the district.
