In this week’s episode, Nourishing the Planet research intern, Matt Styslinger, explains how farmers in Cambodia, with training from organizations supported by the UN Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) and its Regional Vegetable Integrated Pest Management Program, are combining various strategies and practices to grow healthy crops without the aid of expensive and hazardous chemical inputs. This alternative approach is called Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
