  Farming Systems & Integrated Pest Management


Editors : J.P. Verma and Anupam Varma

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. 22 articles by leading experts.
