IPM is a term used to describe a pest management strategy that employs all appropriate approaches in a comprehensive approach with the goal of preventing pest populations from rising to undesirable levels or bringing them down to a manageable level.
Historically, indigenous wisdom was applied to agriculture; local species were planted according to natural cycles. However, today’s mechanized agriculture sectors and their unrestrained price volatility rely heavily on farmers. The majority of seeds are hybrid or genetically modified, and their use increases reliance on chemical fertilizers since chemical pesticides kill vital soil bacteria. The price of producing food has increased significantly as a result of all of this. Pest resistance and soil quality are deteriorating while farmer dependence grows.
IPM is centered on taking precautions, checking the crop or site to see how many pests are present, estimating the potential for pest damage, and taking the proper steps. Cultural practices, biological control agents, insecticides, pest-resistant plants, mechanical techniques, and physical barriers are just a few of the many possible strategies. These strategies can be combined in IPM to create a strategy that is most appropriate for the given circumstance. It is a thorough strategy that focuses on eradicating causes rather than merely treating symptoms
IPM places a strong emphasis on reducing the use of pesticides as the single and effective method of pest management. IPM can increase farmer income while minimizing environmental harm and the danger of chemical exposure on the farm. Identifying the pests accurately is necessary for pest control.
