Integrated pest management is the selection, integration and implementation of pest control based on predicted economic, ecological and sociological consequences. IPM is based on the assumption that no single safe pest control. Method will be successful. IPM, therefore, seeks to use a variety of biological, physical and chemical methods integrated into a cohesive scheme designed to provide long-term protection. Biological methods include using natural predators of pests, using resistant varieties, crop rotation, intercropping, etc. Mechanical methods include manual destruction of eggs of pests, removing weeds, etc. Use of chemical pesticides is carefully timed.
