I.P.M. Pomelo Group

Agricultural innovation

A dozen orchard growers in Nakhon Nayok’s Sarika district, have adopted the integrated pest management (IPM) method for planting pomelo in their 16-hectare land areas. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. They use bio-fermented fertilizer and natural herb-based chemicals to ensure that the comprehensive IPM method is put into practice for environmental and ecosystem benefits. As a result, their pomelos are very juicy and sweet and have a bit of a tang and a soft texture. Located about two hours away from the capital city of Bangkok, this orchard community also provides other agritourism activities for visitors, such as the pomelo buffet, which can be freshly picked from the pomelo trees.
