Integrated Pest Management is one of such systematic approach which emphasizes not only the reduction in the use of pesticides and keeping below the level of pest causing economic injury but also it facilitates the use of cultural, mechanical, botanical, biological and chemical methods of control in an integrated manner and restores ecological balance for sustainable agriculture. The present study was conducted in the selected Chomu and Bassi tehsils of Jaipur district of Rajasthan. Four villages from each selected tehsil were taken on the basis of maximum area under cauliflower cultivation. Thus, total eight villages were selected for the study. For selection of respondents, comprehensive list of cauliflower growers was prepared and 15 respondents were selected on the basis of maximum area from each selected village. Thus, in all 120 farmers were included in the sample of the study. The major constraints perceived by cauliflower growers was lack of knowledge about pest’s lifecycle and their infestation on cauliflower followed by Non-availability of Trichoderma at local markets, Lack of proper knowledge about insect-pests damaging stages” and Lack of knowledge about botanical pesticide.
