Inhaltsangabe: The book provides information about Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to farmers and also others such as agronomists and students.
The authors describe an approach to pest management that can be applied to different farming situations. This approach is capable of incorporating new crops, products and techniques as they become available, and so will be useful even as farming changes. IPM is defined and compared to other options available to farmers.
The book contains information about key pest and beneficial invertebrates without attempting to be a comprehensive guide to invertebrates. High quality photos of invertebrates are used to illustrate the main species or types of pests and whether or not they are beneficial.
Farmers and agronomists should be able to use this book to help them implement an IPM approach on a farm. It provides practical information, written for farmers who are interested in implementing IPM and provides step-by-step guides on how to get started and make decisions regarding pest management. The book also shares information that can help farmers develop a long-term strategy to pest management but also help with making immediate changes if necessary.

Paul Horne and Jessica Page have worked together to develop and implement IPM in a wide range of horticultural and broad-acre crops and pastures. Over the last 5 years they have developed an IPM strategy that farmers in southern Victoria are implementing. Together they have developed a course for farmers and agronomists on IPM for pastures and cropping. They are currently conducting research and development projects dealing with aspects of IPM or demonstration of IPM in Australia and New Zealand.

Integrated Pest Management for Crops and Pastures describes in straightforward language what is required for farmers to successfully implement Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in cropping and grazing operations. It explains the differences between conventional pesticide-based controls and IPM, and demonstrates the advantages of IPM. Effective control of pests depends on a number of approaches, not just chemical or genetic engineering. The opening chapters cover the different approaches to pest management, and the importance of identification and monitoring of pests and beneficials. Most farmers and advisors can identify major pests but would struggle to recognise a range of beneficial species. Without this information it is impossible to make appropriate decisions on which control methods to use, especially where pests are resistant to insecticides. The book goes on to deal with the control methods: biological, cultural and chemical. The biological control agents discussed include both native and introduced species that attack pests. Cultural changes that have led to an increase in the incidence or severity of pest attack are also examined. The chapter on chemical control describes the different ways chemicals can affect beneficial species, also detailing acute, sub-lethal and transient toxicities of pesticides, drawing on examples from horticulture where necessary. Finally, the authors bring all the components of integrated pest management together and show farmers how to put their IPM plan into action. Buchnummer des Verkäufers BTE9780643092570
