National Centre for Integrated Pest Management (NCIPM), a national research centre of Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), India was established in February, 1988 to cater to the emerging plant protection needs of different agro-ecological zones of the country. NCIPM has made a modest beginning in achieving the goals of IPM and is now making essential and pragmatic efforts to synthesize, validate and promote IPM modules in major crops at village levels, develop pest forewarning systems, computer software and preparation of geographical pest distribution maps as well as conducting training programmes in various fields of IPM.
