Farmers and consumers need healthy plants and quality plant derived products for consumption.
Efforts to improve plant health have been evolving with increased understanding of plant
ecology and pest management. In spite of success in controlling the crop pests, pesticides
adversely affect public health and environment.
A major problem faced by the farmers is the attack by various pests and diseases in all
cultivated crops. It is a known fact that the incidence of pests and diseases varies with
weather, soil and ecology and a clear understanding of this variation is inevitable.

peoples health through Good Plant Protection Practice. Pest management strategies need to
recognize that plant health is an essential element of sustainable agriculture. Improvements
in integrated pest management can lead to sound crop health management.
