This was a short project to study the promotion and uptake of microbial pesticides in Thailand and derive lessons that could be of use to other CPP projects. The study carried probably the largest ever survey of the use of microbial pesticides in a developing country, including producers, dealers and farmers. Lessons are drawn from the study to assist other developing countries in their programmes to develop safer, more sustainable crop production.
