The implementation of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) has been a great success in temperate areas, but its role in tropical regions is less known.
The tropics face specific challenges, namely weather that impacts insect life cycles and pesticide application.
Beginning by reviewing the current state of pests, biological and chemical control and emerging technologies, this book then addresses specific crops, providing an up-to-date, research-oriented overview of IPM in tropical regions.
This book will be a useful resource to entomologists, agronomists, horticulturists, and environmental scientists, nature conservation in tropics.
The book is aimed to serve as reference book for students, teachers, researchers, extension functionaries and policy planners associated with insect pest management in tropics.
This book can also be used as supplementary reading material in graduate and post graduate courses.
