Insects and non-insect pests are responsible for causing extensive damage to crops in the field and to grains and stored products in the warehouses and godowns, which necessitates their control. In this book, the author has given:- Detailed account of major insect and non-insect pests of economically important field and horticultural crops and possible measures of their control. Information about household pests, which damage human possessions, as well as insect and non-insect pests, which either cause diseases or transmit various diseases in plants, livestock and humans. A list of minor pests of each crop, which may attain the level of major pests when conditions become favorable for them. List of insecticides approved by the Government of India for use as spray chemicals and granular insecticides and the dosage for their use. The text is substantiated with many, fine hand-drawn illustrations, depicting the nature of damage and life cycle of the pests, which is the highlight of this book. The book is intended primarily for the Under Graduate students of Agriculture, but it will be immense use for the Post Graduate students of Agriculture, officials working in the Department of Agriculture, those interested in scientific farming and for the general public.
