Elaboration of dissemination strategies to increase the impact of internet-based information for non-chemical crop protection within sustainable and organic agriculture programmes.

Purpose

  • to increase the use of computer-based information for non-chemical crop protection by agricultural training and extension services
  • to increase the application of non-chemical crop protection practices by the farmers and thus contribute to the reduction of pesticide use and to the strengthening of the organic production

Objectives

  • Strategies are elaborated on how information on non-chemical crop protection methods could be transported more effectively from the internet to the farmers through local advisors or IPM/FFS facilitators - using the example of the internet information service on non-chemical crop protection of PAN Germany, which is currently under development.
  • The outcome of this workshop serves as a model for other IPM, IPM-related and organic agriculture activities and it gives an orientation to other similar information management activities.

Strategy

Identified contacts from IPM and IPM-related projects of various IPM initiatives determine the information chain for internet-based information presented in the "Online Information Service for Non-chemical Pest Management for the Tropics" of PAN Germany, in order to enrich IPM and IPM-related activities and to increase the adoption of IPM and non-chemical control methods.
