About this book

From the publisher's announcement:

The environmental hazards resulting from half a century's intensive use of synthetic organic crop protection agents make it imperative to consider alternative or complementary approaches to sustainable agricultural development and integrated pest management. Biopesticides of plant origin could be the key to the future. Indeed, in the past thirty years, advances in analytical chemistry and molecular biology have led to a better understanding of the interactions between plants (allelopathy), between plants and pests, and the communication mechanisms between organisms. These advances have also led to the discovery of plant resistance genes. Genetic engineering in plants promises to make a substantial impact on plant-parasite relationships. This multidisciplinary reference book presents an overview of the potential of new crop protection agents of plant origin and their place in integrated pest biocontrol. Their uses in crop protection formulations, the search for new supply sources, and current and future commercial developments are discussed. Written by 34 experts from nine countries on three continents (Africa, America, and Europe), the contributions in this book present an original approach never before published. Biopesticides of Plant Origin is especially designed for researchers, academics, advanced undergraduate and graduate students in science, agronomy, and veterinary school, and decision-makers involved in agricultural development and environmental protection. In addition, R&D principals in the agrochemical and crop protection industry will find data essential to their research work.
