Indigenous Plant Protection in Yemen

Abstract: 
The objective of this report is to identify the range of indigenous practices of plant or crop protection in Yemen in order to develop appropriate recommendations for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in the country's development program. The ultimate goal of an IPM program is sustainable and affordable crop protection which is within the capabilities of farmers and does not harm people or the environment. To the extent that farmers already practice viable methods of traditional crop protection, these need to be understood and encouraged in the development process.
