This chapter describes the contrasting differences in the evolution of integrated pest management in developed and developing countries and the current status of IPM in developed countries relative to that of the developing countries. IPM in developed countries that has evolved over the past 50 years has digressed and now emphasizes control with the application of pesticides and pesticide resistance management. In contrast, IPM in developing countries emphasizes avoidance via cultural control, physical control, host plant resistance, botanical pesticides, biopesticides, behavioral manipulation, landscape management, conservation of natural enemies and biological control. The IPM packages consisting of the above technologies are detailed. The effective IPM technology transfer approach as developed by the IPM Innovation Lab is explained.
