This field guide is based on the best practices and learning experiences of Farmer Field School (FFS) farmer-participants and facilitators in almost two decades of their local IPM program implementations. The exercises in this field guide were further enriched by participants in the Workshop on Designing Farmer Field School Curriculum on Integrated Pest Management For Organic Vegetable Production and a Write-shop to Develop A Field Guide of Discovery-based Exercises for FFS of IPM on Organic Vegetable Farming held in April and June 2008, respectively. To further ensure aptness and practicability, its technical contents were reviewed and critiqued by members of a Technical Review Committee in February 2009. Many exercises were field-validated by participants in two season-long Training of Trainers (TOTs) in eight Practice FFSs for Highland and Lowland Organic Vegetable Production conducted in May-September and July-October 2008 in Bukidnon and Misamis Oriental, Philippines, respectively, and during a season-long Follow- up FFS on Organic Vegetable Production conducted in November 2008-March 2009 in Ilocos Sur, Philippines.

This Field Guide of Discovery-based Exercises for Organic Vegetable Production is designed for use in farmer field schools (FFSs) for organic vegetable production. The exercises in this field guide were based from best practices and learning experiences shared by FFS facilitators and farmer-practitioners, as well as by technical experts (annex a) during the Workshop on Designing Farmer Field School Curriculum on Integrated Pest Management For Organic Vegetable Production held in Laguna, Philippines in 28-30 April 2008. A number of these exercises were either updated versions or totally new ones enriched by experienced IPM facilitators and specialists (annex B) during the Write-shop to Develop A Field Guide of Discovery-based Exercises for FFS of IPM on Organic Vegetable Farming conducted in Laguna, Philippines on 17-19 June 2008. Appropriate exercises were likewise adapted from Field Guide of Discovery-based Exercises for Vegetable IPM [Volumes I1 and II2], which were based from experiences by FFS farmer-participants and IPM facilitators during the past one and a half decades of their local IPM program implementations. In a most recent volume, many applicable exercises integrated in this new field guide were shared by participants, facilitators, and resource persons (annex C) in a previous one-month intensive Refresher Course for Trainers of Integrated Pest Management in Crucifers and Other Highland Vegetable Crops held in Benguet, Philippines in 27 September to 17 October 1998.

ASEAN IPM Knowledge Network (ASEAN IPM) was organized to help national government and nongovernment organizations within the ASEAN region to improve the effectiveness of program implementation by making knowledge sharing easy among national IPM programs and ensuring that information held is accurate, relevant, and up to date. A critical function of ASEAN IPM in this direction is knowledge management. This includes gathering and updating of available integrated pest management (IPM) as well as related practices and experiences in growing a healthy crop from national IPM or crop production programs of ASEAN and synthesis of these information to create knowledge capital appropriate for a specific country. One concrete output in this regard is the Field Guide of Discovery-based Exercises for Corn Production, which is co-published by Philippine Ginintuang Masaganang Ani- Corn and KASAKALIKASAN Programs, ASEAN IPM Knowledge Network, and SEAMEO Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture. This field guide incorporates FFS experiences in integrated soil management methods enriched by technical experts and specialists on harvest and post-harvest management from DA, NFA, BPHRE, USM, and ASEAN IPM. This field guide can be used to enhance experiential, discovery-based, and participatory learning approaches among corn production training participants. We are hopeful that this practical training tool will be used, adapted, or modified by FFS field trainers in conducting season-long corn production training not only in the Philippines but in other ASEAN countries as well, when and where they judge them to be helpful.

This Field Guide of Discovery-based Exercises for Mango Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is designed for use in mango IPM farmer field schools (FFSs). The exercises in this field guide were based on the experiences shared by participants of the Mango Specialist Training (MST) Course on IPM1 conducted in Nueva Valencia, Guimaras from January to May 1996 and the IPM National Technical Workshop conducted in Baguio City in March 19962 . Appropriate exercises were also adapted from the outputs of Technical Refresher Workshops for Rice IPM3 conducted nationwide from October to November 1995 and a Technical Refresher Workshop for Vegetable IPM4 conducted in Atok, Benguet in June 1995 with rice and vegetable FFS facilitators, respectively. In the aforesaid workshops, we shared experiences from all IPM farmer field schools that have been conducted in the Philippines so far. Together we used our resources to build the foundation of the exercises that are documented in this field guide. Some of these exercises are updated versions of exercises that have proven to be effective in the past, while others are totally new.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM in Mango

Mango(Mangiferia indica Linn) is considers as an exotic tropical fruit in western countries. Formerly available only in Asia and the tropics it is fast gaining popularity and is now being imported by European and American countries
. The high international market demand for mango and the intense competition among producing countries produces a stricter international standard control for mango. Furthermore, the current popularity of organic has created a new breed of consumers conscious of health risks and well aware of the danger of pesticides. They demanded not only products of high quality but also produces from the safest methods possible. This is where Integrated Pest Management(IPM) becomes relevant. IPM in Mango is now becoming popular worldwide, making available high quality and safer mango fruits for everyone to enjoy.

Handbook of Non-Formal Education and Team Building Exercises for Integrated Pest Management

This handbook is a collection of: (a) nonformal education methods and approaches; (b) team building exercises; (c) energizers and icebreakers; and (d) evaluation exercises that facilitators like us can use and adapt, when and where we judge them to be useful. We involved as many facilitators as was possible in the design of the exercises in this handbook. Although it can be said that this handbook belongs to us, it will achieve nothing until ideas in it are put into action. Claiming its ownership also means that we have the responsibility to update and modify it as new experiences and ideas come out during the conduct of our own TOSs, TOTs, and FFSs. Admittedly, some methods, approaches, and exercises added in this handbook need to be revised and redesigned when the need arises.

Tungro Management

Tungro Management

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST WIDELY DISTRIBUTED AND MOST DESTRUCTIVE RICE DISEASES IN TROPICAL ASIA. It is transmitted by leafhoppers, the most important is the green leafhopper Nephotetix virescens. The disease is presently associated with two distinct viruses, the rice tungro baciliform virus (RTBV and the rice spherical virus (RTSV). RTBV alone is not transmissible and needs the presence of RTSV for its transmission by the insect vector. RTSV alone is transmissible.

The disease occurs in all counTries of Tropical asia. The earlier the disease attacks during the growing period of the plant, the greater is the damage. Heavy losses occur when seedlings are infected (kresek type). It does not affect the number of spikelets when the disease occurs on mature plants.
