Easy access to information on pests, diseases, and IPM is a challenge to many farmers and extension personnel living in rural areas.
WhatsApp platform offers a way to share information of diagnostics and management: 1. Produce and distribute handouts for IPM management such as leaflets, fliers and posters explaining the IPM diagnostics 2. Share knowledge about the efficient IPM technologies/strategies in a stakeholders' workshop organized together with other partners 3. Use Whatsapp group to exchange IPM advice and training materials. 4. Use knowledge generated to suggest policy alternatives on IPM.
