About this book

A definitive guide to the development, application, and use of biopesticides as a complementary or alternative treatment to chemical pesticides. Biopesticides: Use and Delivery brings together for the first time all the latest advances in the control of insects, plant diseases, and weeds with biopesticides. Coverage extends from the science and technology of biofungicides, bioinsecticides, and bioherbicides to detailed management protocols. The many leading experts writing here review their development, mode of action, production, delivery systems (formulations), and future market prospects. In addition, experts from both government and industry discuss current registration requirements, including time frame and costs of registration, and compare these with the registration requirements for conventional pesticides.

The chapters on commercial experience with neem products and the spinosyns for insect control are particularly informative...This volume will provide a useful reference for growers, students, regulators and industrial planners. - The Quarterly Review of Biology the most comprehensive source of information about this group of products of relatively quickly growing importance, and could be very helpful not only for everyone working in research in crop protection and for university teachers and students in this field, but also for entomologists, environmental biologists, microbiologists, biotechnologists, etc. - biologia plantarum In fact, the whole book is set out in a very neat and easily managed way. The many references within the text are referred to by numbers, and a full list is given at the end of each chapter. There is also a comprehensive index at the back of the book. on reading the text, one finds it is consistently clearly and interestingly written. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the subject. - Plant Pathology
