Nepal, a country whose most of the economy is dependent on agriculture yearns to be self-sufficient but due to an unaware as well as ignorant population and poor infrastructure, the productivity is still unsatisfactory. As a result of which, haphazard use of pesticides was exercised. To resolve this problem, IPM tactics were introduced that includes a combination of biological, physical, chemical, cultural, and all kind of strategies to minimize pest risk and improve the yield sustainably. IPM components must be institutionalized in appropriate educational, research, extension, and farmer groups, as IPM has been proposed as an option for reducing pesticides overuse and misuse. The dissemination of these tactics to all levels of farmers is still underway in Nepal. However, the impacts seen are considerable. According to various research, the implementation of IPM tactics and approaches has drastically (more than 50%) reduced pesticide uses and increased yield by more than 10% in a very short period. Its complete execution is yet to be obtained which will revolutionize the agricultural practices and economic pattern of import and export.
