Pest management in horticultural crops; an integrated approach to vegetable pest management with the aim of reducing reliance on pesticides in Kenya. Final Technical Report.

Abstract

Vegetable production constitutes a key component of the livelihood strategy of small-scale, peri-urban farmers in Kenya. The production system is constrained by the negative impact of pests (low yield/quality of crops) and drawbacks or hazards resulting from excessive or inappropriate use of pesticides. In 1996, the Crop Protection Programme of DFID commissioned a number of complementary research projects to address these constraints. This report describes the outputs of the second phase of the central project, ‘Pest management in horticultural crops; an integrated approach to vegetable pest management with the aim of reducing reliance on pesticides in Kenya’ (R7403; ZA0300)
