Integrated pest management (IPM) provides a long-term strategy for minimizing losses caused by pests, with as little cost to the grower and disruption of the environment as possible. Written by a collaboration of experts in the field, this detailed manual is designed to help growers apply IPM principles in managing their rice crops.

What's Inside?
Special sections on crop growth and development and general management practices offer vital background information on using IPM strategies. The chapter on Managing Pests in Rice provides a detailed chart of management considerations that will help you plan your IPM program and predict or prevent potential problems before they occur. Vibrant and colorful photographs and descriptions fill the pest sections (weeds, invertebrates, diseases, and vertebrates) to help identify pests and pest damage. An informative glossary is available for looking up definitions of unfamiliar terms.
