Chapter synopsis: This chapter reviews the dissemination, adoption and benefits of the push-pull cropping system in Conservation Agriculture (CA), an innovation that was developed and promoted by the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE) and partners with a view to addressing some of the biotic and abiotic constraints threatening cereal farming in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). This chapter introduces push-pull technology, outlines its dissemination and adoption, and describes the benefits of push-pull technology in Conservation Agriculture systems. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future research trends in this area.
