Pesticide resistance is becoming more frequent and widespread with more than 500
insect species known to have become resistant to synthetic insecticides. On the other hand,
consumers increasingly demand agricultural products without any pesticide residues. This
book, for the first time, shows the alternative: solely physical methods for plant protection
by means of thermal, electromagnetic, mechanical and vacuum processes. A glossary rounds
up this extremely valuable book.
