Principles of IPM

Posted in


The basic principles in IPM are as follow-

(1) Pest control should be developed and applied in the total environment. Pest population should be managed in such a way that existing limiting and regulory factors are exploited to the fullest extent without disturbing the regulation of other pests. This principle defines the underlying philosophical approach to IPM.

(2) Additional maotality or regulory factors are introduced into the environment at appropriate times to maintain the pest population below the economic injury levels. This principle defines the goal of the integrated control system.
