Summary: "Integrated pest management (IPM) is an innovative approach to the economic control of pests. Reducing pest populations below the economic injury level is the chief objective of IPM. It involves various pest control techniques that besides keeping pest populations in check also keep pesticides and other pest management interventions to economically justifiable levels and reduce the risk to human health and the environment. IPM lays emphasis on natural pest control mechanisms with minimum disruption to agro-ecosystems. It has applications in agriculture, horticulture, preventive conservation, turf pest management, ornamental pest management and preventive conservation, besides others. This book elucidates the concepts and innovative models around prospective developments with respect to integrated pest management. It aims to shed light on some of the unexplored aspects of this field. Coherent flow of topics, student-friendly language and extensive use of examples make this book an invaluable source of knowledge."--Back cover
