The adoption of IPM technology in tomato using African marigold as atrap crop, root dipping of seedlings in Imidacloprid, soil application ofneem/pongamia cake, spraying of botanicals like pongamia soap and biopesticidelike Ha NPV has been found effective in both insect as well asdisease management. The IPM technology has been found economicallyviable as the yield on IPM farms has been found higher by about 46 percent, cost of cultivation has been less by about 21 per cent and the netreturns have been higher by 119 per cent. The technology can beconsidered environment-friendly as it uses more of eco-friendly inputsand less of chemicals. The constraints like non-availability of botanicalsand bio-pesticides should be addressed on priority basis to make thetechnology sustainable and more popular.
