Integrated Pest Management for Specific Products


USAID,Cardno Emerging Markets



One of the challenges in Timor-Leste is the ability of farmers to manage the pest and disease challenges to crop production, and to understand and manage the costs and benefits of those management options. Therefore improving farmer skills in managing pests and disease by considering health and the environment alongside increased yields and cost efficiency is paramount in Timor-Leste.

Partnering with Cardno Emerging Markets USA, Ltd., the USAID’s Avansa Agrikultura Project is a horticulture value chain activity aimed at addressing the key challenges of rural poverty, natural resource degradation, food insecurity, and under-nutrition.

World Education’s Integrated Pest Management Training builds the capacity and self-confidence of famers, Avansa field staff, and agricultural extension workers in Timor-Leste to identify pests and disease and utilize targeted countermeasures to reduce infestations and protect yields through the use of local materials. Working in rural communities, World Education is delivering hands-on training in IPM demo-plots as well as developing training manuals that can be utilized once the training is complete.
