This book examines key scientific and technological advances within the last decade, that have the potential to dramatically improve the practice of integrated pest management (IPM).

Based on the proceedings of the 1999 international conference by the same name, this book covers the progress made in diagnostics, genetic engineering, biological control, pesticide technology, global positioning, geographic information systems, and information processing and delivery.

Technological developments of this sort are needed to achieve the vision of IPM as an ecological and economical sound, socially acceptable, holistic approach to crop protection. Entomologists, pest management consultants, plant pathologists, weed scientists, agriculture chemical industry professionals, agricultural regulatory personnel, commodity association professionals, educators and students will find Emerging Technologies for Integrated Pest Management: Concepts, Research and Implementation a useful resource.
