Awareness Building Program on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) For Horticultural Crops

Program Description

This two-day training program was held in Pune, India July 28-29, 2010 and was organized and supported by the Indian Horticulture Development Alliance (IHDA).

The Indian Horticulture Development Alliance (IHDA) is a broad-based and inclusive coalition established to comprehensively address horticulture market development in India. IHDA is a United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded project led by a specialized team of Michigan State University (MSU). The IHDA focuses on developing value chains for horticulture products that have high potential for expanded distribution and sales in India’s rapidly-evolving food retail sector and high value export markets. The overarching goal of this alliance is to increase profits of producers and processors of selected Indian horticulture commodities. The IHDA achieves this overall goal by building capacity of Indian producers and processors to meet market-driven international standards (e.g., food safety, quality, traceability) and by linking these producers and processors to high-value markets.
