A Research and Development plan for the introduction of Integrated Pest Management in the Ethiopian Rose Sector

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

    Abstract

    All parties involved agree upon the advantages of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in Ethiopian rose production. There should be no a priori limitation to the introduction of IPM including biological control. Transport facilities, willingness by farmers, consumers’ zero-tolerance to chemical residues, positive experiences in other countries, and growing cooperation between growers, researchers and government are some of the enabling factors. However, the introduction will not be a matter of simply changing pesticide use, or of adopting a technology. The key factor will be the growing confidence of growers to be involved in and contribute to the process of developing a more sustainable rose production in Ethiopia.
