What is Integrated Pest Management? Write down its principle and
importance.
Integrated pest management (IPM) is a strategy that is based on the ecosystem, which
focuses on the long term pest prevention of pests and their damage due to a combination of
techniques such as biological control, modification of cultural practices, habitat manipulation,
the use of resistant varieties, mechanical Control, sanitary control, natural control, and
biological control.
IPM means
Don’t attract pests
Keep them out
To get rid of them using the safest, most effective method if you are sure you have them.
Principle:
The main principle of IPM is the

Before you take action you need to identify the insect, what are their costs and benefits
to organisms
Set up guidelines for each pest species monitoring.
Determine the pest activity threshold.
The outcome should be monitored, evaluated, and documented.
Importance:
1. IPM is a dynamic system that employs an ecological system perspective and encourages
users and producers to explore and employ the complete range of optimal pest control
choices available, taking into account economic, environmental, and social factors.
2. It could reduce and suppress the pest population beneath a particular threshold.
3. Integrated pest management is one of the adaptive methods which means it can be used in
many ways to have the same problem.
4. The IPM professional can use this approach to spot potential health risks to people and
animals in the area.
5. Adopting Integrated pest management (IPM) solution has financial benefits it promotes
long-term growth, increases productivity, and also the reduction in pest damage. The
IPM thoroughly eliminates the need for synthetic pesticides. So a better environment
benefits everyone for a long time.
6. It can be implemented at any stage of agricultural development as a problem-solving
method for pest management. To improve the basic management of the crop like crop
spacing. Can help reduce insect infestation. Additional data, technologies, and other
methods can be developed later to improve efficiency.
