Pests and pathogens; management strategies.

Ed. by Dashavantha Reddy Vudem et al.

590 pages




There was a time when pest management strategy was simply a matter of following the directions that came with the pesticide, but those times are gone. Here agricultural scientists describe some of the problems and some of the approaches to dealing with them in an environmentally sustainable manner, with a particular focus on India. Their topics include biotechnological approaches for managing grain mold disease of sorghum, insect pests of caster (Ricinus communis L.) and their management strategies, microbial chitinases as potential biopesticides, molecular marker-assisted breeding for improving disease resistance in crop plants, and concepts and components of integrated pest management. Distributed in the US by CRC Press.
