The transfer of IPM in rice is undertaken in the 10 villages of Mandal and Quatbullapur Mandal of Rangareddy district of Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh. Out of these 10 villages, a total of 70 farmers from the 5 villages viz. Medchal, Atweli, Dublipur, Girmapur and Railapur were selected randomly. The IPM module for the particular region was developed, validated and promoted with the use of appropriate scouting tactics, proper identification and diagnosis of pests and diseases. The farmers were interviewed personally through a Questionnaire covering various aspects of IPM, socio-economic variables of farmers, knowledge and constraints. IPM programs have proved a track record of significantly reducing the risks related to pesticides, while improving quality, health and welfare of environment. Thus the farmers of the selected region were provided training on IPM and were made aware of the benefit of increased productivity and reduced pest damage.
