This publication outlines a brand new paradigm, “Agro-ecological Intensification of Crop Protection”, which reduces damaging affects at the setting and complements the supply of surroundings providers. It discusses using ecologically dependent administration techniques to extend the sustainability of agricultural creation whereas decreasing off-site results, highlighting the underlying ideas and outlining the various key administration practices and applied sciences required to enforce agro-ecological pest administration. It additionally comprehensively explores vital themes like stimulo-deterrent diversion procedure, precision agriculture, plant breeding, nutrient administration, habitat administration, cultural techniques, cultivar mixtures/multiline cultivars, crop rotation, crop residue administration, crop range, disguise plants, conservation tillage, biofumigation, agro-forestry, and addition of natural topic. This well timed e-book promotes the fast implementation of this expertise in farming neighborhood round the globe.
It is a precious source for the medical group enthusiastic about instructing, learn and extension actions regarding agro-ecological pest administration in addition to policymakers and working towards farmers. it may well even be used for instructing post-graduate courses.
