Generic IPM Guideline for Vegetable Crops

While an integrated pest management (IPM) approach to pest and disease management is generally crop-specific, the
components and principles of an IPM programme are more generic.

The aim of this guideline is to provide vegetable growers, crop scouts, crop consultants and crop managers with an understanding of the key components and strategies for growing vegetable crops using IPM.
