Abstract

ABSTRACT:
Insecticides  cause  undesirable  side  effects  to  the  human  health  thus;  non-
chemical control methods are now gaining importance day by day.Integrated
Pest  Management  (IPM)  has  emerged  as  a  science-based  approach  to
minimize the risk associated  with  the use of pesticides. Both  the developed
and  developing  countries  have  taken  major  initiatives  to  promote  IPM  in
principal agriculture crops. Present communication is mainly focused on IPM
strategies for the management of insect pest in rice ecosystem.
