IPM Systems need to be developed for agriculture to be economically and environmentally strong, in production, storage, and food processing. Although the concept and philosophy of integrated pest management have been largely accepted for some time, its implementation is complex and faces numerous potential problems. If IPM is to enjoy widespread approval and adoption, it must be clearly defined and economically and socially acceptable. The topics covered in this book include a range of topics, such as: risk-benefit analysis, transgenic crops in IPM and consumer response to IPM.

Readership: Crop protection, entomology and pest management.
