Integrated Pest Management
Caring for the farmer
Integrated Pest Management – or IPM as it is commonly known – is an environmentally sensitive approach for controlling pests that involves the use of the least possible amount of chemical crop protection products across the world. IPM uses the best available combination of cultural practices as well as biological and chemical control measures, including appropriate plant biotechnology. It also provides the most cost effective, environmentally safe and socially acceptable method of managing diseases, insects, weeds and other pests in agriculture.
