Launch of the Pests of Bhutan website and database

Pests of Bhutan was formally launched on 12th May 2017. It is hoped that it will help support the agricultural industry in Bhutan by making the latest information on plant protection available to extension officers, researchers, agri-businesses and farmers across the country.

It currently contains pest fact sheets for 50 invertebrate pests, 15 pathogens, 1 vertebrate pest, 2 invasive weeds and general weed management across 3 major crops, as well as other resources such as on invasive plants, electric fencing and relevant publications. This represents the majority of the most serious pests currently affecting the eight main crops being grown within Bhutan. Information for additional pests and crops will be incorporated with time.

Please contact NPPC with any suggestions for enhancements.
