Post-harvest tobacco infestation control edited by L Ryan 1995 155pp ISBN 0 412 63130 X Chapman & Hall 2-6 Boundary Row, London SE1 8HN, UK
This book reviews all aspects of the insect pests of tobacco including the methods used for their control, from the point at which the crop is harvested through to the production and storage of finished tobacco products. Control procedures to eliminate outbreaks of infestation are also reviewed, including the use of fumigation insecticides, insect growth regulators and physical methods. Protocols for the use of physical methods, primarily heating and cooling to combat infestation by insects, are also covered. In addition, a number of case histories are described to demonstrate integration of the methodologies. The text is supplemented with a full reference list.
