About this Item: New India Publishing Agency, 2010. Hardcover. Condition: New. Excessive use of chemicals and pesticide in agricultural crops is being deplored by the community and scientists. It is because of the fact that, these not only result in environmental and safety hazards but also lead to development of new strains of pests and pathogens. Thus the use of `organic products` which do not have any utilization of chemical fertilizers and pesticides are increasing day by day. The book deals with the detailed description about a number of biopesticides which are used for management of fungi, bacteria, virus and nematodes. Topics like biological control of soil borne fungi, plant viruses, applications of bacteria, Rhizobacteria, plant species etc. are discussed in detail in the book. The traditional aspects of biopesticides management along with the future prospects and biotechnological approaches and applications have been dealt in the book. As biopesticides industry is growing at a fast pace and the use of new tools and techniques by the researchers are making it more meaningful, the volume as a whole will serve as a tool for the management of diseases in an eco-friendly manner."

About this Item: Scientific Publishers, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: New. Drivers behind food security and crop protection issues vis-à-vis the food losses caused by pests include rapid human population increase, climate change, loss of beneficial on-farm biodiversity, reduction in per capita cropped land, water shortages, and pesticide withdrawals. Integrated pest management, therefore, becomes a compulsory strategy in agriculture, which offers a `toolbox` of complementary crop- and region-specific crop protection solutions to address these rising pressures. IPM aims at more sustainable solutions by using complementary technologies and one of them is the use of biopesticides including genetically modified cropping systems. The aim is to reduce pests below economic thresholds utilizing key `ecological services`, particularly biocontrol systems via semiochemicals, biopesticides, precision pest monitoring tools, and rapid diagnostics. In fact, we are facing twin problems of environment and food security for the expanding population and it is necessary to ensure adequate pesticide-free food. The ecofriendly nature of biopesticide products suggests environment protection and safety for natural enemies and non-target organisms. However, their adoption and use have lagged behind due to certain constraints like variable performance under field situations, lack of quality standards and interest by big industrial houses, and cumbersome regulatory procedures. The present book is an attempt to critically debate over all these issues and suggest a road map for future. Contents: 1 Biopesticides: Spring board to environment and food security - G. S. Dhaliwal, Opender Koul, Sucheta Khokhar and Ram Singh 2 Attracting predators and parasitoids using herbivore induced plant volatiles (HIPVs) and maximizing their impact with nectar rewards- G. M.
