In Trinidad excessive chemical application among vegetable producers is widely practiced, chemical pest management policies did not exist, consumer markets demanded unblemished produce, and financially viable alternative systems such as IPM were in their infancy. Researchers visited Trinidad to gather information on the governmental policies on IPM, and on the utilization and knowledge of IPM among vegetable farmers in major production areas. Information was also compiled from a random sample survey of 135 small farmers in Barbados. The questions asked covered various socio-economic aspects plus similar questions to those asked in the Trinidad study of IPM.
