About this book

The book covers the underlying concepts and methodologies of diffusion of innovation theory and programme evaluation; and reviews the progress and impact of IPM programmes implemented in the industrialised, the green revolution and the subsistence agricultural systems of the world. Impact of IPM has been discussed with interdisciplinary perspective by experts from entomology, plant pathology, environmental science, anthropology, economics and extension education from North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia. The book provides an invaluable resource material to the scientists, professionals, students, program planners and farmers.
