Department: Technical Cooperation
Project Name: Integrated Pest Management in Vegetable Production and Fruit Flies Control Project in Royal Project Foundation (Thailand)
Project Description: The third-phase project (2017-2019) will focus on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in vegetable production and fruit flies control. The TaiwanICDF will cooperate actively with Thailand’s Royal Project Foundation to develop bio-control agents together with IPM for the control of major diseases and insect pests of vegetables and fruit flies; to arrange Royal Project study tours to Taiwan to study related technologies; and to hold training courses to enhance the skills of Royal Project technicians on relevant techniques during the third cooperation phase. Overall, the project will:
1.Develop effective bio-control agents for the IPM program for vegetable production in lettuces, cabbages and tomatoes.
2.Set up the IPM program for fruit flies control in fruit trees of peach, persimmon, and citrus.
3.Enhance the capability of technicians and extension staffs in the Royal Project on IPM techniques.


Implementation Start Date: 2017/1/1
Implementation End Date: 2019/12/31
Executing Agency: TaiwanICDF
Thailand's Royal Project Foundation
Current Progress:

To the end of March 2019, the following activities have been completed:

1.Compared strains of Trichoderma 002, 004, 005 on fungal disease control of tomato seedlings and discovered the effect of Trichoderma was similar to chemical pesticides.
2.Collected tomato virus disease samples: 2 samples from Pha Tang Agricultural Station and 8 samples from Pang Da Agricultural Station and conducted analysis.
3.Chose 16 experiment fields from Agricultural Stations such as Angkhang, Inthanon, Mae Poon Luang and Pha Tang and set up 80 traps to analyze population, density and frequency of fruit flies.
4.Compared IPM and general control through setting up 4 pheromone and 11 modified attractant methods in 4 experiment fields in Angkhang and Inthanon Agricultural Stations.
5.Applied fruit bagging technique in Angkhang and Inthanon Agricultural Station.
6.Dispatched 2 experts to assist in "application of insect sex pheromone and lure in integrated pest management" and "fruit fly control and frequency detection application". 7.Held "bio-control agricultural materials" training, "fruit fly control and pest management" and "agricultural operations and management "trainings.

2.Develop two kinds of parasitic fungi to combat insect pests.
3.Complete a field test report of bio-control agents on two field conditions.
4.Complete a report of IPM on comparison of vegetable virus disease control.
5.Develop three new formula/recipe of highly effective botanical pesticides.
B.To set up the IPM program for fruit flies control in fruit trees of peach, persimmon, and citrus.

2.Complete a field comparison report on biological control and chemical control.
3.Complete a field comparison report on IPM and general control.
4.Apply fruit bagging techniques on three fruits for fruit fly control.
C. To enhance the capability of technicians and extension staffs in the Royal Project on plant protection techniques.

(1)Train 10 extension staff.
(2)Develop one extension manual.
2.Hold fruit fly extension activities:
(1)Train 10 extension staff.
3.Arrange nine study trips to Taiwan.
4.Dispatch nine experts from Taiwan for short-term visits to hold training courses.
5.Hold an international seminar.
