This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
Summary for Project titles: R8341: Promoting adoption of integrated pest
management in vegetable production and R8417: Promoting adoption of
integrated pest management in vegetable production through improved
resources for Farmer Trainers.
A systematic approach to planning and applying effective 'pyramidal'
training and dissemination strategies is now available to help get new
techniques into use by farmers. Originally developed to promote
integrated pest management (IPM), the system can be used to build
capacity in a wide range of fields. From innovative, interactive and
enjoyable training courses for trainers and farmers, to training guides,
farmer pocket books and pest identification cards, a host of useful and
welltargeted outputs have already been produced. These are being used in
40 countries. Plus, the generic training strategy has already been
successfully used locally by government agencies and NGOs such as
Harvest Help and SACDEP in 10 countries: Kenya, Zimbabwe, Uganda,
Jamaica, Cameroon, Ghana, Lesotho, Zambia, Mauritius and India.
