ADOPTION OF INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGIES : AN ECONOMIC ANALYSIS
For successful adoption of IPM technologies in vegetables, there is a need to know their economic feasibility and identify critical factors that come in the way of their adoption. An economic model has been developed to achieve the above objectives. The usefulness of the model was demonstrated with the help of an IPM technology on cabbage crop using Indian mustard as a trap crop. From the results of using this model it was observed that the value of the main crop i.e. cabbage lost due to space occupied by the trap crop is an important factor which inﬂuences its adoption, besides other factors like non- availability of neem seed and extra work and time involved in sowing the trap crop twice.
