Abstract:
The research investigates the psychological underpinnings, constraints, and suggestions influencing the adoption of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices among soybean growers. The psychological profiles of respondents reveal diverse attitudes, scientific orientations, innovativeness, and knowledge levels. Notably, attitude, innovativeness, and knowledge exhibit significant positive correlations with IPM adoption, emphasizing their pivotal roles. Constraints faced by soybean growers, with improper knowledge about pheromone traps ranking highest. This underscores the need for targeted education on IPM tools and techniques. Suggestions, with a prominent emphasis on disease resistant soybean varieties and increased technical knowledge. The multifaceted insights provide a foundation for tailored interventions, educational initiatives, and policy recommendations to bolster the adoption of sustainable IPM practices in soybean cultivation, fostering agricultural resilience and sustainability.
