|Abstract:||Groundnut a very important oilseed crop is a member of leguminosae family grown during kharif season. It has a very significant place in oilseed crops. Groundnut is grown in India on very large scale and India contribute to 22% of world production. Groundnut is grown in 8 million ha and produces 7.3 million tonnes. Groundnut crop is sown in 0.276 million hectare area in Rajasthan and its production is 0.478 million tonnes. Before implementation of IPM module in the area IPM benchmark survey of 40 randomly selected farmers of village Vallabhnagar of dist. Udaipur, Rajasthan in kharif 2007 season was conducted. Analysis was done of this survey data. As per the survey 85% farmers knew that white grub, collar rot and leaf blight were the key pests of the area. 8% farmers use seed treatment with fungicides and only 15% farmers use pesticide spray. Only 12.5% farmers agree that pesticide spray is effective and useful. 5% farmers have heard about IPM but only 7.5% use bio-pesticides as a component of IPM. After analysis of survey data of farmers IPM module was developed and synthesized for this location/specific area. IPM technology was implemented on the concept of ‘Farmers Field School. After implementation of IPM module in the village farmers obtained 12.8 q/ha yield in year 2008 and 15.26 q/ha in year 2009 while in Non-IPM, they obtained only 7.16q/ha and 11.57q/ha, respectively and they also got more net profit from IPM groundnut crop. In this research paper results of three years have been used and shown.|
