About Us

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a system approach that combines a wide array of crop production and protection practices to minimize the economic losses caused by the pests (insect pests, diseases, nematodes, weeds, rodents, birds etc.). It emphasizes on careful monitoring of pests and conservation of their natural enemies. NCIPM has made a modest beginning in achieving the goals of IPM and is now making essential and pragmatic efforts to develop computer based programs for storage and retrieval of information on different aspects of IPM. Research programmes have been formulated for number of crops for promoting environmentally sound IPM technologies. Centre is striving for effective co-operation with All India Coordinated Crop Improvement Programmes; Crop Research Institutes; SAUs; DST; Environment and Bio technology Departments of GOI; National Remote Sensing Agency; IMD; NIC and DPPQ&S; NGOs and Industries for implementation of its programmes.

Mandate

  • Information and Communications Technology (ICT) based surveillance, monitoring of pest population, research and promotion of pest smart IPM technologies for major crops.

  • On farm validation of IPM technologies, forging linkages with commodity based crop research Institutes, AICRP/ AINP and capacity building.

Facilities Available

Agricultural Knowledge Management Unit

Institute had established a fully functional Agricultural Research Information System (ARIS) cell later rechristened Agricultural Knowledge Management Unit (AKMU). AKMU is equipped with latest hardware and software required to cater the need of center and its staff. It has three servers working as web server, database server and mail server; network security systems such as Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Unified Threat Management (UTM) and network anti-virus system; 100 mbps dedicated NKN internet connectivity; latest printers and scanners. AKMU works as information base for the Centre and also provides information management and exchange facilities to institute staff for effective and efficient research. The major functions of AKMU are:

  • Development of Database and information systems on IPM.
  • Dissemination and sharing of IPM knowledge and information
  • Facilitation of e-connectivity with  ICAR and other agricultural research institutes

NCIPM Library

The library of the centre has more than 2500 books, encyclopedia and manuals, covering various aspects of agriculture including IPM, computer applications, economics, statistics and chemistry. NCIPM regularly subscribes to several journals on plant protection, annual reviews and abstracts, thus enriching the literature facility regularly. Koha online library had been implemented @ http://192.168.100.112 . All the available books encyclopedia and manuals have been digitized. The process of digitization national and international journals is in progress.

Microbial Laboratory

NCIPM has a diagnostic microbial laboratory and also has a repository for more than eighty insect pathogens, antagonists. Nucleus cultures of bioagents are supplied for field testing purposes across the nation. Trainings on mass production technology of bioagents and quality control of biopesticides to prospective entrepreneurs are taken up from time to time.

Priority setting, monitoring and evaluation (PME) cell

Priority setting, monitoring and evaluation (PME) cell maintains records of all the research projects and programmes of the Centre. Submission of six-monthly targets and achievements of the scientists (HYPM) of the Centre to the Council are the other activities of the PME cell. Submission of monthly cabinet, quarterly and half yearly progress reports, provision of material for DARE report of the scientists to the Council and processing proposal for trainings/ seminars/symposia/conferences are carried out through PME Cell.
