Integrated pest management

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an environmentally sensitive approach to dealing with plant pests using the following techniques:

  • introducing beneficial predators, parasites and pollinators into your orchard
  • understanding pest life-cycles and their interaction with the environment.

IPM can be used effectively in your orchard alongside any of the following common techniques: 

  • chemical pest control
  • biological pest control methods
  • host-plant resistance 
  • cultural practices.

Find out more about how to use this approach in the mango field guide PDF (7.4 MB).
