Salient Research Achievements

Programme IV: Socio-economic issues and impact assessment of IPM

Social-economics consideration in IPM technology

Significant achievement

  • IPM Technology of Basmati rice is less labour incentives as well as less capital incentives as compared to Farmers practice (for year 2013-2016). Recommendations to be included in POP of the state.

Studies on the constraints in adoption of IPM technologies in selected vegetable crops

Significant achievement

  • The study was conducted to identify the constraints in vegetable IPM adoption in selected vegetable crops Cabbage, Ginger and Capsicum with randomly selected 100 respondents from IPM & non-IPM vegetable growers of Ranichauri, district Tehri Garwal Garhwal (Uttrakhand).

  • In the study villages the majority of farmers were following the cultural pest management practices for minimizing the pesticide losses due to pests.

  • The study indicated that the 72% farmers have learnt and adopted the pest management practices, understood the pest management skills in IPM farmers whereas the only 45% farmers in Non-IPM beneficiaries.

  • It was observed that cultural practices namely raised bed sowing was adopted by 75 % farmers and proved important component of IPM. Consumption of chemical among the vegetable growers was also found very are rare due to non-availability of pesticides at local level.

  • The data also revealed that adoption of IPM components such as Trichoderma, Neem based products and pheromones trap was not observed encouraging due to non-availability these in the study area.

  • The pro-active role of state extension agencies in information delivery and input supply certainly will motivate the farmers for adoption of IPM. The promotion of IPM need to counter many of these problems will be to strengthen the existing extension component by involving local KVKs, farmers groups and of the IPM programme.

Extending promising IPM technologies in selected vegetable based cropping system of Western region of Uttar Pradesh

Significant achievement

  • Linkages and collaboration with potential IPM stakeholders such as KVK, Bulandshahr (UP) were also developed for effective collaboration.

  • Conducted surveys to ascertain IPM awareness and Knowledge level of farmers and extension personnel and knowledge level of farmers and extension personnel
