Chapter 1 (Page no: 1)

Integrated pest management: retrospect and prospect.

This paper outlines the history and evolution of pest management tactics based on the era of traditional approaches (ancient-1938), era of pesticides (1939-75) and era of integrated pest management (IPM, 1976 onwards). It identifies the key elements of a successful IPM programme as well as the constraints (institutional, informational, sociological, economic and political) associated with its implementation. Strategies that could accelerate IPM implementation (farmers' participation, government support, legislative measures, improved institutional infrastructure and improved awareness) are also discussed.
