Way and van Emden (2000) also dealt only with insect pests and did not include diseases in their effort to identify paths for the successful application of IPM for crops in temperate and tropical countries. IPM Technology Transfer The Training and Visit (T&V) extension system proved to be the popular extension program in the 1960s and 1970s when IPM first started to emerge.
