Pesticides remain a major means of controlling pests and disease of crops and as such have made a major contribution to increasing the world's food production. Despite the problem of pests and diseases developing resistance to certain pesticides, and public concern about their indiscriminate use and side-effects, they are likely to remain the basis of integrated pest management programmes. However, as this book seeks to demonstrate, there is scope to improve both the safety and efficiency of crop protection methods. The emphasis of the book is on methods of assessment and on application techniques to particular categories of crops.
