Recent technological advances in agriculture have evolved
farming systems that have made it possible to achieve crop
yields approaching the theoretical maximum. It is, however,
essential to recognise that the recommended technology (the
blue print) for achieving yield potentials must include
pest management as its integral component. Fundamentals
of integrated pest management (IPM) are now universally
accepted in various farming systems. The book emphasises
that biotechnology will aid, in a big way, to prevent losses
by pests and usher in an era of Zero Chemical Agriculture
with unexpected improved agricultural production efficiency.
