Insects associated with raw grain and processed food cause qualitative and
quantitative losses. Preventing these losses caused by stored-product insects is essential
from the farmer's field to the consumer's table. While traditional pesticides play a significant
role in stored-product integrated pest management (IPM), there has recently been, and will
continue to be, a greater emphasis on alternative approaches. Alternatives to Pesticides in
Stored-Product IPM details the most promising methods, ranging from extreme
temperatures to the controversial radiation, and from insect-resistant packaging to pathogens.
This collection is essential for anyone in academia, industry, or government interested in pest
ecology or food or grain science.
