About this book

Pests of Field Crops and Pastures is the first comprehensive handbook on economic entomology for Australian field crops and pastures. It encompasses pest and beneficial insects as well as allied forms of importance in Australian agriculture. Organised by commodities - such as cereals, sugar and summer pulses - it allows all the pests for a particular commodity across Australia to be examined.

Indentification, distribution, damage, host range, risk period, monitoring and management techniques are some of the other descriptions provided for each entry. The book also describes beneficial insects that have been introduced from overseas to act as biological control agents. Progressive farmers, agronomists, agricultural consultants and academics alike will find this book to be a useful tool in crop management.
