About this item

Insects, diseases, and weeds cause an almost 30% yield loss per annum in agricultural production, resulting in an increased consumption of pesticides by 20% per annum throughout the world. This comprehensive volume looks at the status of biopesticides and biocontrol agents in agriculture. It will be a critically important reference work, providing basic facts and studies on new and current discoveries of the role of biopesticides and bioagents in integrated pest management (IPM). The book contains four main sections, covering

  • the status of biopesticides and biocontrol agents in agriculture
  • plant health-promoting biocontrol agents
  • parasitoids and predators
  • genetically modified crops and Bacillus thuringiensis, and phytochemicals in biocontrol

The volume provides information regarding new advances in microbial, biochemical, and genetically modified and organic nanoparticles in integrated pest management.

Biopesticides and Bioagents: Novel Tools for Pest Management should find a prominent place on the shelves of agriculture and plant scientists, microbiologists, biotechnologists, plant pathologists and entomologists working in academic and commercial agrichemical situations, and in the libraries of all research establishments and companies where this exciting subject is researched, studied, or taught.
