Abstract:

Pests cause widespread losses even if control measures are administered. They are hurting the prospects of many agricultural produce exporting countries. On numerous occasions developing countries have faced embargo owing to the presence of pests in the produce. Area wide pest management (AWPM) is clearly one of the strategies to mitigate such pests which pose threat to the people, crops, livestock and foreign exchange of the countries. AWPM is the long term planned campaign against pest population over a large geographical area. It not only involve traditional approaches like cultural and biological control but also advanced molecular based novel tactics like sterile insect technique (SIT), release of insect carrying dominant lethal (RIDL), Cytoplasmic incompatibility (CI) through Wolbachia. However, apart from these tactics some countries have made pest free areas (PFA) where, stricter norms and laws have been implemented to curb the movement of pest to these areas. AWPM is clearly; one of the methods which comply with sanitary and phyto-sanitary (SPS) measures of World Trade Organisation (WTO) and it has the potential to help producers, traders, packers and exporters, etc around the world.
