Summary:This book, the third in the series on integrated pest management (IPM), deals with pesticide use and the negative consequences of pesticide use in world agriculture. Despite some notable success, IPM implementation and pesticide reduction programs have not achieved the envisioned impact. Low volume pesticides and Bt crops both decreased and stabilized pesticide use in the last two decades, but in the last few years pesticide use has increased, and herbicide resistant transgenic crops are one of the factors propelling it. The book captures the essence of different techniques to reduce pesticide use from the perspective of international authorities from different disciplines and industry. The book will serve the professionals, researcher, academia, governments, industry and students.
