IFCs would be of immense use to pesticide dealers, crop specialists, plant protection personnel and State extension officials and have wider utility. Use of IFCs would enhance proper marketing and field use of insecticides and fungicides on scientific basis. IFCs are products of potential value addition developed under National Innovations in Climate Resilient Agriculture (NICRA) and Crop Pest Surveillance and Advisory Project-Maharashtra (CROPSAP) and later extended to additional crops for dissemination of crop protection technologies under integrated pest management (IPM) umbrella within the framework of ‘Digital India’.
