A methodology for determining insect control recommendations


, : A methodology for determining insect control recommendations. IRRI Research Paper Series (46): 1-31

Generation of insect control technology usually starts in laboratory, greenhouse and field trials at commodity oriented experiment stations. Applied research adapts the technology to specific areas (environments) within a country. During this phase, insect control technology is specified to farm level cropping patterns and is integrated into other production practices. The methodology of applied research includes the subprocesses of description, design, testing and evaluation. Description includes evaluation of present insect control practices, determination of resource level for applying appropriate insect control technology, understanding constraints and managerial limitations to the adoption of improved technology, quantification of yield losses and identification of key pests. Appropriate technology is selected (design phase) based on the results of description and is verified through cropping pattern trials on fields (testing phase) over several years. Results are analyzed (evaluation phase) in relation to the current production system. If the improved technology is economically attractive, a decision may be made for extension services to embark on a resting program. Technical problems during the transfer of information are fed back through the system and may lead to controlled experiments.
