Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Featuring more than 250 color photographs of pests and crops, and more than 100 drawings, this book, with its authoritative text, enables you to identify pests quickly—and to prevent, correct, or live with most common pest problems. Crop tables at the end of the book describe major pests on 30 vegetable and fruit tree crops and refer you to specific pages for more detail.

The book's approach minimizes the use of broad spectrum pesticides, relying primarily on alternatives such as: biological control; resistant varieties; traps and barriers; less toxic pesticides such as soaps, oils, and microbials; changing planting, irrigation, or cultivating procedures; and other preventive measures.

Includes: landscape designs that prevent pests; planting, irrigating, other plant care activities that prevent potential problems; resistant varieties; biological controls (use of parasites, predators, or pathogens); less-toxic pesticides such as soaps, oil, and microbials; mulches and other physical and mechanical controls; references, suppliers list, and glossary.Now in an extensively revised new edition, the highly successful Pests of the Garden and Small Farm adapts scientifically based integrated pest management techniques to the needs of the home gardener and small-scale farmer.

Synopsis:

Authoritative text enables readers to identify pests quickly and to prevent, correct, or live with most common pest problems. 250 color photos, 100 drawings.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 266-270) and index.
