This book offers a complete overview of the technologies and products for microbial-based pest control. It documents the use of genetically altered Bt and transgenic crops, microbial formulations, and synergistic interactions of microbials with synthetic chemicals, as well as the management of Bt foliar applications and Bt genes in transgenic crops. Other chapters cover viral insecticides, biofungicides, bioherbicides and mycoinsecticides as well as considering the integrated use and commercialisation of biopesticides. It also includes case studies, an index of pests and pathogen, product lists and manufacturers indexes.
