About The Book

The growing human population at an alarming rate is a major challenge facing agriculture in the 21st century. It is expected to rise to 9 billion or more during the mid of this century requiring food productivity to be doubled as compared to present, posing a great challenge on the part of the agricultural scientists to develop high yielding production technology and intensification in crop produce practices. Intensification would have serious implications of increased use of pesticides to control incidence of emerging pests for quick results. The increased use of pesticide would pose more problems in the form of development of insecticide resistant populations, resurgence of pest populations and pollution of the environment. These challenges have resulted in reorientation of pest management strategies in the form of ecofriendly approach of integrated pest management (IPM). The IPM has been widely practised and accepted in countries with temperate climates, however, such a progress has been inconspicuous by its absence in areas with tropical climates which constitute around two-third of earth's surface.
