A systems approach to sustainable IPM in irrigated cotton in India
This is an output prepared for the TECA database and is based upon the following RNRRS project:
By taking account of the constraints experienced by cotton farmers, the role of cotton in the farming system and the temporal dynamics of the pest complex, a rational, systems approach was developed to improve IPM decision making for irrigated cotton in northern India. The emphasis was on sustainable management of insecticide resistant pests while maintaining or enhancing farmer incomes and improving the environmental impact of cotton growing in the Punjab. A systems approach was adopted to help provide a rational solution to the pest management decisions faced by farmers growing irrigated cotton.
