About this book

Biological controls that utilize natural predation, parasitism or other natural mechanisms, is an environmentally friendly alternative to chemical pesticides. Chemical pesticide methods are becoming less readily available due to increasing resistance problems and the prohibition of some substances. This book addresses the challenges of insufficient information and imperfectly understood regulatory processes in using biopesticides. It takes an interdisciplinary approach providing internationally comparative analyses on the registration of biopesticides and debates future biopesticide practices.

"Gives an up-to-date view on factors affecting pesticide usage, restrictions, the need for IPM [...] and the role of biopesticides [...] definitely worth reading."
Journal of Experimental Agriculture, Vol. 47 (4), 2011
