The percentage of farmers practicing different ITKs ranged from 11 to 78.65 per cent. Identification of scientifically sound indigenous practices may serve as the input for valid scientific management for large scale use of insect pest management and in generation of low cost, location specific and appropriate technology.

Abstract


The present study describes the ITK of pest management practiced by the farmers of Tinsukia districts of Assam. The information was collected on the basis of personal interview to each of the farmer through a questionnaire. A total sample of 200 farmers of twenty different villages was selected randomly from three rural developmental blocks of the district. All in about 30 ITKs were collected and documented. The percentage of farmers practicing different ITKs ranged from 11 to 78.65 per cent. Identification of scientifically sound indigenous practices may serve as the input for valid scientific management for large scale use of insect pest management and in generation of low cost, location specific and appropriate technology.
