    Nipping the problem at the bud- Pest surveillance for SAFII Project

    After construction of Plastic houses in various groups and training on Nursery Management, Small Agro-Farmers Income Improvement Project (SAFII) project is taking a good pace. Thus, taking a step further, pest surveillance was held in three sites of SAFII (namely Kalleri, Chhap and Irkhu), to know the existing disease and pest problems. The visit was led by our Agriculture expert Dr. Ram Chandra Bhusal, along with our Agriculture Officer Mr. Anjesh Shrestha, agriculture technician, Ms. Shanti Gautam and Ms. Deepika Adhikari (Bsc.Ag).

    A little prevalence of pests like Tuta absoluta and Leaf miner and disease like Fusarium wilt in its initial stage were seen. Our experts recommended management options as per the prevailing problems to the farmers like use of yellow sticky trap for aphids and lure for Tuta absoluta.

    Timely pest surveillance and regular monitoring help prevent aggravating the problem. Identifying the problem in the initial phase and solving the problem is a crucial part of commercial farming.
