Integrated disease management (IDM) is the combination of effective and necessary strategies used to manage plant disease below the economic threshold level. This strategy does not include routine chemical application to prevent disease but promotes cultural, physical, biological and mechanical control practices in a holistic way rather than using a single component strategy proved to be more effective and sustainable. Environmental safety, reduce the cost of cultivation, judicious and limited use of fungicide is the aim of IDM.
