Abstract: The adoption of IPM technology in tomato using African marigold as a trap crop, root dipping of seedlings in imidacloprid, soil application of neem/pongamia cake, spraying of botanicals like pongamia soap and biopesticide like Ha NPV has been found effective. The IPM technology has been found economically viable as the yield on IPM farms has been found higher by about 46 percent, cost of cultivation has been less by 119 percent. The technology can be considered environment friendly as it uses more of eco-friendly inputs and less of chemicals. The constraints like non-availability of botanicals and bio-pesticides should be addressed on priority basis to make the technology sustainable and more popular.
