Biological Control in Plant Protection: A Colour Handbook, Second Edition
La Trobe University. Macquarie University. Monash University. National Library of Australia. Political Science Psychology. Get in Quote. Description Table Of Content Reviews. Productivity of horticultural crops in India is relatively low compared to other countries.
Of the several factors responsible for lower productivity of horticultural crops, pests insect and mite pests are considered as important limiting factors. Some pest problems coconut mite, spiralling whitefly on fruit crops, coffee berry borer, diamond back moth on crucifers, serpentine leaf miners on several crops, fruit flies in fruits and cucurbits are of national importance which causes significant losses to horticultural crops.
The annual losses due to pests to all the crops in India was estimated at Rs. The excessive dependence on chemical pesticides leads to development of resistance in pests insects, mites, nematodes and diseases , outbreak of secondary pests, toxicity towards natural enemies and occurrence of pesticide residues in food chain. Considering these limitations, there has been a growing awareness to develop biological control measures which brings about a reasonably good degree of pest reduction and at the same time ensure sustainability of production, cost effectiveness and healthy environment.
Commercial scale production of biopesticides for the biological control of pests in the recent past has been quite intense.

Several package of practices have been developed nationally and internationally for pest management using commercially available bio-inputs especially microorganisms. The efforts aimed at increasing the naturally occurring biotic agents against the pests, both quantitatively and qualitatively can be termed as biological control.
The information on biomanagement of pests insect and mite pests in horticultural crops fruits, vegetables, plantation, spice, tuber, ornamental, medicinal and aromatic crops is very much scattered. There is no book at present which comprehensively and exclusively deals with the above aspects on horticultural crops.
The present book deals with management of pests in horticultural crops in detail using biological predators, parasitoids and pathogens-fungi, bacteria and viruses and integrated methods bioagents, botanicals, insecticides.
