About this book


In Biopesticides: Use and Delivery, Franklin Hall and Julius Menn bring together for the first time all the latest advances in the control with biopesticides of insects, plant diseases, and weeds. Coverage extends from the science and technology of biofungicides, bioinsecticides, and bioherbicides to detailed management protocols. The many leading experts writing here review their mode of development, action, production, delivery systems (formulations), and future market prospects. In addition, experts from both government and industry discuss current registration requirements, including the time frame and costs of registration, and compare these with the registration requirements for conventional pesticides.
Offering a definitive practical guide to the development, application, and use of biopesticides as a complimentary or alternative treatment to chemical pesticides, Biopesticides: Use and Delivery will serve as a today's best and most comprehensive reference for scientists, practitioners, regulators, industrial planners, and marketers.
