Promoting adoption of integrated pest management in vegetable production. Final Technical Report.
This project focussed on dissemination of information on vegetable pest management, including that generated by projects in the Crop Protection Programme. It developed training materials and piloted an effective system to disseminate knowledge and skills, via a two stage training programme. The project objective was to enable farmers to use IPM methods to grow safe and healthy crops in a profitable and sustainable way. It was achieved by creating a mixture of information transfer materials and then using these as the basis for carrying out a series of training courses.
