Title : Development and Dissemination of Integrated pest management (IPM) technology of Khasi mandarin (Citrus reticulata Blanco.) in Tinsukia district of Assam

Abstract :

Khasi mandarin is among the most well known commercial fruits of the North-Eastern region of India. Its cultivation in Assam has been hindered due to an onslaught of insect pests and disease problems. The use of IPM modules is a promising strategy for the effective management of insect-pests in Khasi mandarin. Hence, a programme was undertaken for the development and dissemination of recommended IPM technologies among the Khasi mandarin growers of Tinsukia district of Assam under ICAR-NCIPM-TSP project during 2018-2021. The various IPM interventions were practically explained to the growers by organizing village level group discussions, trainings, front line demonstrations, farmers scientist interactions, farmers’ exposure visits and regular field visits. The importance, need and benefit of IPM strategies were described categorically. IPM technologies were disseminated to a total of 65 adopted beneficiaries. Forty five percent (45%) farmers of that locality adopted this new technology and management of the pest with this technology seems to be result oriented.
