ID 202407 Integrated Pest Management: Advancement, Adoption and Ecological Challenges


About the Book

This book offers a comprehensive assessment of the strategies utilized in ecologically-based pest management, delivering a well-rounded examination of methods that prioritize environmental safety and ecological integrity. It delves into various subjects, including the employment of biological control mechanisms involving fungi and viruses, the preservation of natural predator populations, the application of botanical solutions and the correlation between efficient pest management and the advancement of food security. Positioned within the broader realms of agriculture, sustainability and environmental preservation, this publication presents a diverse and globally-informed viewpoint on integrated pest management. Its insights are valuable not only to researchers specializing in entomology, crop protection, environmental sciences and pest management, but also to those with multidisciplinary interests.
