Insecticide resistance in Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner) is a major threat to crop production in India.  Critical gaps in the knowledge base for management of resistant H. armigera in India are identified.  The status, need and constraints to utilisation of Insecticide Resistance Management (IRM) technologies such as scouting, resistance monitoring, temporal and spatial restrictions on the use of pesticides, regulation of application rate, application technology and use of biocontrol agents are discussed in relation to conditions prevailing in India.  A simple IRM strategy for improved control of H. armigera in cotton is suggested.  The need for adopting Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in other host H. armigera crops is emphasised.
