Biological Control of Insect Pests

S. Ignacimuthu (Editor) S. Jayaraj (Editor)
Synopsis Natural and applied biological control tactics are important in successful management of pest populations. It is well known that natural enemies of insect pests play a key role in biotic balance, reducing levels of pest population below those causing economic injury. Most of the synthetic chemicals decimate the beneficial parasitoids and predators. The value of biocontrol is now well recognized particularly in the context of environmental protection as well as stable pest management strategy. The role of biopesticides particularly microbial pathogens in biorational pest management has been well documented and the efficacy of microbial pathogens can be enhanced further by genetic improvement. This volume covers different articles presented by scientists from all over India relating to biological control based pest management strategies of various pests of sugarcane, rice, millets, cotton, pulses, oilseeds, fruits, vegetables, coconut, spices, forestry, sericulture and public health.
