Abstract:

Integrated pest management (IPM) is an eco-friendly approach for management of pests by connecting biological, cultural and chemical tools to decrease economic, health and environmental hazards. The study assessed the chemical pesticide use in vegetable crops and prioritized the constraints for successful adoption of IPM practice in selected vegetable crops in peri-urban agriculture. IPM programs have progressed rapidly in recent times because of changes in pest resistance, regulatory decisions limiting the availability of pesticides, increased chemical costs, consumer concerns and environmental issues. Pest management in vegetable crops had not received the same level of attention as other crops. Participatory approach such as Farmer Field School (FFS) and Participatory Action Learning (PAL) have proved to be very successful in promotion of Integrated Pest Management in vegetable crops and used to engage IPM stakeholders as to complementary groups that together could support the range of extension needs. One of the most effective methods of training is extension of integrated pest management, farm is on the way to school. The learning process can be facilitated by the extension workers or trained farmers which can hence encourage the farmers to discover key agro-ecological concepts and develop IPM skills through self-discovery activities.
