van Lenteren, Giuseppe Manzaroli. The first volume of the Integrated Management of Plant Pests and Diseases book series presents general concepts on integrated pest and disease management, organized in three sections.
Section one (modeling, management, environment) includes chapters on infection models, resurgence and replacement, plant disease epidemiology and effects of climate change in tropical environments. Chemical control. Chemical pesticides are often used to control diseases, pests or weeds.
Chemical control is based on substances that are toxic (poisonous) to the pests involved. When chemical pesticides are applied to protect plants from pests, diseases or overgrowth by weeds, we speak of plant protection products.

INSECT-PEST MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL DAMAGE FROM INSECT PESTS Insects are pests when they reduce the quantity or quality of food, feed, forage, or fiber during production; damage commodities during harvesting, processing, marketing, storing, or use; transmit disease organisms to man or valuable plants or animals; injure or annoy useful animals or man; damage ornamental plants, lawns, or flowers.
Description This book (28 chapters), which is the 17th volume in the Crop Production Science in Horticulture Series (18 volumes that focus on scientific principles underlying production practices for economically important horticultural crops from major production systems in temperate, subtropical and tropical climatic areas), summarizes the available information regarding the origin, taxonomy.
by pollinating plants and feeding on other insects that are pests. However, most agricultural plants are damaged, weakened, or killed by insect pests.
This results in reduced yields, lowered quality, and damaged plants or plant products that cannot be sold. Even after harvest, insects continue their damage in stored or processed Size: KB.
