About Us

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a system approach that combines a wide array of crop production and protection practices to minimize the economic losses caused by the pests (insect pests, diseases, nematodes, weeds, rodents, birds etc.). It emphasizes on careful monitoring of pests and conservation of their natural enemies. NCIPM has made a modest beginning in achieving the goals of IPM and is now making essential and pragmatic efforts to develop computer based programs for storage and retrieval of information on different aspects of IPM. Research programmes have been formulated for number of crops for promoting environmentally sound IPM technologies. Centre is striving for effective co-operation with All India Coordinated Crop Improvement Programmes; Crop Research Institutes; SAUs; DST; Environment and Bio technology Departments of GOI; National Remote Sensing Agency; IMD; NIC and DPPQ&S; NGOs and Industries for implementation of its programmes.
