Integrated Vegetable Pest Management. Safe and Sustainable Protection of Small-scale Brassicas and Tomatoes
Now here s a handy guide for controlling pests in tomatoes and brassicas (such as cabbages and broccoli). In a nutshell it describes the cultural, biological and chemical pest control methods and lists the common pests attacking the two vegetable species. The colour photos make it easy to recognise both the pest and the damage it does to crops; it is child s play to quickly find the information needed. Yellow-edged pages introduce the control measures, red-edged pages the tomatoes and green-edged ones the brassicas. A good handbook for extension workers and trainers, written especially for the Zimbabwean context but the contents will be equally applicable elsewhere in sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.
