IPM in developing countries: the danger of an ideal
Integrated pest management IPM , also known as integrated pest control IPC is a broad-based approach that integrates practices for economic control of pests. The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization defines IPM as "the careful consideration of all available pest control techniques and subsequent integration of appropriate measures that discourage the development of pest populations and keep pesticides and other interventions to levels that are economically justified and reduce or minimize risks to human health and the environment. IPM emphasizes the growth of a healthy crop with the least possible disruption to agro-ecosystems and encourages natural pest control mechanisms. The introduction and spread of invasive species can also be managed with IPM by reducing risks while maximizing benefits and reducing costs. Shortly after World War II, when synthetic insecticides became widely available, entomologists in California developed the concept of "supervised insect control".
The book covers the recognition of the problems of dysfunctional and indirect economic and environmental consequences of pesticide use in agriculture, through research and development of different IPM tactics. Written by an interdisciplinary team of experts from entomology, plant pathology, plant breeding, plant physiology, biochemistry, and extension education covering externalities of pesticide use, pest outbreaks, threshold theory, host plant resistance, crop plant manipulation, biological control, behavioral-modifying techniques, botanicals, and non-pesticide pest management. An excellent source of advanced study material for academics, researchers and students, elucidating the underlying concepts of the IPM development process.

Intergrated pest management IPM can be shown to be the best mix of available tactics for a given pest problem by comparison with the yield, profit and safety of alternative mixes. IPM programmes try to extend the best mix to large numbers of farmers, but can fail because of political, social or perceptual aspects of the programme-farmer relationship.

Integrated pest management
Integrated pest management IPM is a valuable tool for reducing pesticide use and for pesticide resistance management. We first describe the complexity of crop pest management and how various social actors influence grower decision making, including adoption of IPM. Second, we discuss how crop pest management fits the definition of an SES, including such factors as scale, dynamic complexities, critical resources, and important social—ecological interactions. Third, we describe heuristics and simulation models as tools to understand complex SES and develop new strategies.
This paper examines the evolution of integrated pest management IPM into the dominant paradigm in crop protection. The driving forces behind the development and adoption of IPM are explored and the conditions under which successful IPM has been practised are outlined. Repeated calls for the adoption of IPM in international agricultural research, extension and resource-poor farming are questioned in respect of claims made by IPM proponents. When examined, it becomes apparent that IPM per se is not a panacea for solving the problems faced by resource-poor farmers. Further investigation into the social, political, economic and ecological parameters associated with the development and implementation of IPM shows that is can work under certain conditions.
