ICAR-National Research Centre for Integrated Pest Management is bringing out a compilation of Success Stories of Integrated Pest Management with detailed insights into the strategies developed by NCIPM for different crops suited to varied agro-climatic locations. This publication is not only a technical primer but a way to understand how to implement IPM in the field. It is a publication on ‘do how’ which would be an addition to knowledge about IPM. The publication of successful technologies of IPM for various field and (rice and pulses), commercial (cotton and oilseeds), vegetable (cauliflower and cabbage) and fruit (kinnow and khasi mandarins) crops, development of light traps and implementation of area-wide ICT-based e-pest surveillance, and advisories through short message services to farmers with the needful creation of IPM awareness has been the result of hard work by scientists, technical, administrative and supporting staff of NCIPM along with many other researchers and field functionaries engaged in the field of plant protection across the country.
