Cite article:- Singh Vijay, Godara A.K., Kumar Pardeep, Singh Nasib (2024). SUGARCANE GROWERS’ KNOWLEDGE LEVEL ABOUT INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN HARYANA. Agricultural Science Digest. 29(1): 16-19. doi: .
The study was conducted on 120 sugarcane growers from four randomly selected villages
of Jagadhari and Radaur blocks from Yamunanagar district in Haryana state. The overall
high knowledge score was recorded in cultural and chemical control of insect-pests in
sugarcane crop. However, majority of farmers had no knowledge about biological control
of insect-pests. Among the ten personal characteristics studied– education, land holding,
socio-economic status, extension contact, mass media exposure, risk orientation, economic
motivation and change proneness were found to have positive and significant correlation
with knowledge level of overall IPM practices of sugarcane growers. There is a need to
educate the farmer about the importance and different approaches of IPM in sugarcane
crop by using appropriate extension methods.
