So what's the problem?
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) can be described as a strategy that focuses on long term prevention of pests and the damage they cause. It uses a range of non-chemical based agricultural practices and pesticides are only used as a last resort. This way, the health of farmers and consumers are protected and negative impacts on the environment are reduced.
What is this project doing?
The Ministry of Agriculture's Extension Division asked to CABI to implement a workshop for the extension officers and Farmer Field School Facilitators who help support farmers, in order to increase their knowledge and give farmers the tools to identify the most common natural enemies present in the island.
