"Alternatives to use of synthetic pesticides".
"Alternatives to use of synthetic pesticides".
This project aims to promote the practice and adoption of alternatives to-chemical agriculture i.e. organic farming is the best approach as it does not encourage use of pesticides to keep pests away. Instead the approach promotes Integrated Pest Management (IPM) whereby use of pesticides in crop protection becomes the last resort with a view of emphasizing natural control methods that do not harm the farmer, the consumer or the environment
