Foreword - To provide a reasonably comprehensive guide to agricultural pests and their control? we attempt to briefly describe the most important pests and agricultural products. In describing the control for each crop, we try to provide you with some information to aid your understanding of both the specific problem and its relation to other crops and pests.
Through this understanding, the first stage in the intelligent application of control procedures is achieved. Thus, an over application of pesticides to overcome the.effect of unknowingly harboring a pest reservoir in or at the edge of the field/yard can be avoided. The second stage of intelligent (safe, economic) pest control is gained through thorough familiarity with the use of the chosen method of pest control. The effort expended by academic, industrial, and governmental experts in determining the best dosage levels and methods of application is wasted unless the product label is read and followed.
Your interest, hopefully aroused by our work, can be further developed by contacting the appropriate experts in government, academia, or industry. To aid you in this activity, we try to provide references in each section. Finally, this effort is dedicated, with yours, to the production and consumption of agricultural products of the best quality.
