Myanmar’seconomy relies on agriculture. The Plant Protection Division was established in 1979 with financial and technical support from FAO/UNDP and GIZ. An Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Section was established and since then has been collaborating with other sections of the PPD in carrying out its functions. An IPM Steering Committee was established in 1999. Farmer Field Schools commenced in 2000 with EuropeAid funding for rice IPM in 2011-2015 and maize IPM from 2012-2014.
