Insect Resistance Management : Biology, Economics, and Prediction

Author: David W Onstad
Publisher: Amsterdam ; Boston : Elsevier/Academic Press, [2014] ©2014
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : English : Second editionView all editions and formats
Summary:
Neither pest management nor resistance management can occur with only an understanding of pest biology. For years, entomologists have understood, with their use of economic thresholds, that at least a minimal use of economics was necessary for proper integrated pest management. IRM is even more complicated and dependent on understanding and using socioeconomic factors. The new edition of Insect Resistance Management  Read more...
