H C L Gupta (Author) O.P. Ameta (Author) V.K. Chechani (Author)
Synopsis The concept of IPM has been developed to cope up with the diversity and complexity of pest problems which limit the production as well as the quality of produce. The horticultural crops are very important diversified group of crops which are susceptible to a large number of insects causing reduction in yield. In traditional agriculture, the insect pests were kept under check by various cultural and mechanical approaches; while modern agriculture, relies upon the use of synthetic organic insecticides which has resulted in aggravated resistance and environmental problems. Besides providing background information for the important insect pests of vegetables, fruits and ornamental plants, this book discusses in detail about the insect pests behaviour, nature and symptoms of attack, host range and utilization of cultural, biological, chemical, biorational and other innovative approaches in an integrated way so as to manage them in a sustainable eco-safe manner. The book will also be useful in providing valuable information to be implemented at the farmer’s level. It also provides comprehensive information for teachers, researchers and extension personnel engaged in designing and implementation of IPM programme for horticultural crops.
