About this book

The International Working Conference on Stored Product Protection, held every four years, is a world forum for the presentation of research results and reviews on the safe storage of durable foodstuffs, of which cereal grains, pulses and oilseeds make up the largest components. This volume presents the proceedings of the eighth conference, held in York in July 2002. The volume highlights work on the pests and diseases that may cause spoilage, adverse health effects and loss of the crop after harvest, and discusses new techniques for the safe, effective and environmentally friendly management of stored commodities. With nearly 200 keynote, oral and poster papers and contributions from leading experts from around the world, the volume should interest applied entomologists, plant pathologists, post-harvest biologists and agricultural engineers.


The future of stored product protection - impacts of global issues; biology, detection and biological control; food safety; chemical and physical control; processing and applications; workshop reports. (Part contents.)
