The program endeavors to promote pest management systems that are environmentally friendly, socially acceptable and economically sound to our communities. We encourage the use of a variety of options that enhance good agricultural techniques and less reliance of synthetic pesticides. They include cultural, biological and physical control techniques with minimum emphasis on chemical use. The Idea is not to eliminate the pests but to manipulate their population below economic injury levels. This achieved through research, trainings, demonstrations and conduct of workshops/seminars for stakeholders’ engagement on the progress, challenges and strategies for effective and efficient pest management.
