A large number of noxious pests attack all parts of plant resulting into a lot of quality produce. This book uniquely combines all the subjects of plant protection, and discusses the scope and methodology for increasing the production potentials of various crops. In all 33 chapters written by various scientists who are experts in their field of plant protection have been included. Right blend of improved technologies and effective management approaches and methodology for promoting production and productivity can go a long way in helping the farmers and ultimately, the country in general.
