Abstract
India has successfully reduced pesticide consumption without adversely affecting the agricultural productivity by appropriate policies that discouraged pesticide use and favored IPM application. Adoption of IPM is low owing to a number of socio-economic, institutional and policy constraints, like lack of commercial availability of biopesticides and inappropriate institutional technology transfer mechanisms. Farmers are aware of technological failure of pesticides to control pests, and their negative externalities to environment and human health exposure. Leading to consequences that the pest risk is too high to conduct experiment with newer IPM approaches. Since, IPM is a complex process and the farmers lack understanding of its approaches and methods of application of new technology components. The socio-economic and the environment of farming is also an important factor in adoption of IPM that works best when applied by the entire community in a synchronized mode. This is unlikely to happen without front-line demonstration and support to farmers. However, many IPM technology programs are based on community approach, and the new IPM policy of India should provide incentives to farmers in future to adopt IPM as a cardinal principle of plant protection. Therefore, in this review we highlight the IPM, its progress and the future strategies to adopt so as to control the yield loss by insect pests.
