Field Crop Arthropod Pests of Economic Importance

Field Crop Arthropod Pests of Economic Importance presents details on the bioecology of important arthropod pests of selected field crops grown in most parts of the world. It provides key information on crops that are attacked and includes factors favouring crop growth and development. Management options for insect pest control on crops include biological, cultural, and chemical methods. However, agricultural crops provide food to a wide range of insect pests throughout the year, which makes it difficult to find a simple solution for insect pest control in most cropping systems. A whole-farm approach or integrated pest management combines cultural, natural, and chemical controls to maintain insect pest populations below levels that cause economic damage to the crop. However, accurate species identification and thorough knowledge of the biology and ecology of the target organism is important. Integration and effective use of various control components is often enhanced when the target organism is correctly identified, and its biology and ecology are known. Students and professionals in agronomy and economic entomology will find this book a valuable learning aid and resource tool. Includes insect synonyms, common names, and geographic distribution Provides information on natural enemies Thoroughly referenced for future research

Arthropods as pests in crops, vectors of diseases, pollinators, and natural enemies of pests are of huge economic importance. They affect livestock, human health and food supplies around the world. This unique book examines and reviews how light and colour can be used to enhance pest management in agricultural and medical applications by manipulating the optical responses of arthropods. Arthropods use optical cues to find food, oviposition sites and to navigate. Light also regulates their diurnal and seasonal activities. Plants

Ecological engineering is about manipulating farm habitats, making them less favourable for pests and more attractive to beneficial insects. Though they have received far less research attention and funding, ecological approaches may be safer and more sustainable than their controversial cousin, genetic engineering. This book brings together contributions from international workers leading the fast moving field of habitat manipulation, reviewing the field and paving the way towards the development and application of new pest management approaches. Chapters explore the frontiers

Arthropods are invertebrates that constitute over 90% of the animal kingdom, and their bio-ecology is closely linked with global functioning and survival. Arthropods play an important role in maintaining the health of ecosystems, provide livelihoods and nutrition to human communities, and are important indicators of environmental change. Yet the population trends of several arthropods species show them to be in decline. Arthropods constitute a dominant group with 1.2 million species influencing earth’s biodiversity. Among arthropods, insects are predominant, with ca. 1 million

This book is an up-to-date and comprehensive reference covering pest management in organic farming in major crops of the world. General introductory chapters explore the management of crops to prevent pest outbreaks, plant protection tools in organic farming, and natural enemies and pest control. The remaining chapters are crop-based and discuss geographic distribution, economic importance and key pests. For each pest the fundamental aspects of its bio-ecology and the various methods of control are presented. Understanding of the scientific content
