In developing countries, more than a quarter of potential food and fibre crop yield is routinely lost to pests, weeds and diseases. Minimizing the damages caused by these organisms in a sustainable manner cannot be achieved without considering the whole farming system in which the crops are produced. These challenges require the development of integrated crop management systems for pests, diseases and weeds, which are environmentally sustainable and socio-economically appropriate. Participatory approaches are needed for the development and extension of integrated crop management technologies and strategies. Hence, there is need to develop/utilize crop management strategies that cause very little environmental pollution. Management of crops in an integrated manner could be quite useful in this direction. This will include studies ranging from land preparation through seeding, propagation and management, up to harvesting.
