About this book

The IPM-innovation development process is incomplete without the diffusion and adoption of IPM methods by the end users, and through its consequences. The book covers the underlying concepts and methodologies of the diffusion of innovation theory and program evaluation; and reviews the progress and impact of IPM programs implemented in the industrialized, the green revolution and the subsistence agricultural systems of the world. The impact of IPM is discussed with an interdisciplinary perspective by experts from entomology, plant pathology, environmental science, agronomy, anthropology, economics and extension education from North America, South America, Europe, Australia, Africa and Asia. The book provides invaluable resource material to scientists, professionals, students, program planners and farmers.
