Hardcover  289 pages  ISBN 9783540630586      £186.00
This book contains a wealth of information covering pesticide chemistry, biochemical modes of action, biological activity and the theory of pesticide application in management programs. Emphasis is placed on novel biological insecticides that block certain stages in the development of pest insects. Special attention is given to insecticides with selective properties and their role in integrated pest management programs. Insecticide resistance management strategies are also discussed. The data and concepts presented are relevant to those interested in establishing new technologies and developing novel groups of compounds that will determine future agricultural practices. The contents include:

  • Insecticides with novel modes of action: an overview.
  • Ecdysone Agonists.
  • Pymetrozine.
  • Imidacloprid.
  • Buprofezin.
  • New retrospectives on the mode of action of benzoylphenyl urea insecticides.
  • Bacillus thuringiensis: use and resistance management.
  • Pyrrole insecticides.
  • Avermectins.
  • Efficacy of phyto-oils as contact insecticides and fumigants for the control of stored-product insects.
  • Novel type insecticides: specificity and effects on non-target organisms.
  • Management of resistance to novel insecticides
