Area-Wide Control of Insect Pests: From Research to Field Implementation

Buy
The world population is still growing at an alarming rate, requiring ever increasing productivity and less waste in agriculture to cope with the increasing demands to satisfy food security for all humans. Alleviation of poverty is in many countries hampered by a myriad of insect pests that cause enormous economic losses to agricultural commodities, both at the pre- and postharvest stages. Initially, most of these insect pests were controlled to a varying degree by the use of broad-spectrum insecticides. However, the indiscriminate use of these chemicals as a control tactic is no longer sustainable in view of increased development of resistance, pollution of soils and surface water, residues in food and the environment, representing risks to human health and biodiversity, etc. As a consequence, demands have been voiced at least since “Silent Spring” in 1962 for control tactics and approaches that are not only efficient, but also sustainable and friendlier to the environment.

Insect pests are becoming a problem of ever-more biblical proportions. This new textbook collates a series of selected papers that attempt to address various fundamental components of area-wide insect pest control. Of special interest are the numerous papers on pilot and operational programs that pay special attention to practical problems encountered during program implementation. It s a compilation of more than 60 papers authored by experts from more than 30 countries.
