About this book

Handbook of Forage and Rangeland Insects is a comprehensive text that examines agricultural pest management from all angles – magnifying practical field strategies for growers, updating growers on the latest protection techniques, and preventing needless crop loss as a result of outdated pest control procedures.

Forage and rangeland crops harbor a wide variety of injurious and beneficial arthropods. Handbook of Forage and Rangeland Insects will help individuals (producers, land managers, consultants, extension personnel, researches, teachers, and students) to identify these arthropods and to outline methods for the management of both beneficial and harmful species.
