About this book

This book has been mainly written for the research workers and students of various Universities, who are interested to use eco-friendly indigenous plant materials in pest management programme. The book provides a brief amount on different plants having pesticidal properties viz., plant taxonomy, geographical distribution, chemical constitutions and their structural formula, their mode of action, procedure for preparation and their safety to non target organisms.

It is hoped that this book will be very useful to graduate/post graduate students of Agriculture as well as Basic science, researchers and extension workers. This book will be useful to environme- ntalists who are interested to minimize the use of synthetic chemicals in pest manag- ement programme and also for the pesticide formulation industries to develop newer molecules based on phytochemicals. Every attempt has been made to provide necessary information for students and researchers, which is hardly available in other books.
