Pest control is the study of the development and spread of plant diseases and arthropod pests and the factors affecting these processes. Biological control is the beneficial action of parasites, pathogens, and predators in managing pests and their damage. Biocontrol provided by these living organisms, collectively called “natural enemies,” is especially important for reducing the numbers of pest insects and mites. The book presents information on principles of pest control, biological pest control, botanical insecticides, pesticides, decision tools for integrated pest management, pesticides use in agriculture, pest management cover crops, biological control and crop disease management, biopesticides and pest management, detecting genotoxic effects of pesticides in plants and guidelines of pest management. The present book is an asset for the policy makers, teachers, researchers and students of plant pathology, entomology and nematology.
