Organic controls that make the most of typical predation, parasitism or different common mechanisms, is an
environmentally pleasant replacement to chemical insecticides. Chemical pesticide tools have gotten much less on hand because of expanding resistance difficulties and the prohibition of a few substances.

This ebook addresses the demanding situations of inadequate details and imperfectly understood regulatory strategies in utilizing biopesticides. It takes an interdisciplinary method delivering across the world comparative analyses at the registration of biopesticides and debates destiny biopesticide practices

Example text

By the 1840s a third of the population was entirely dependent on the crop. However, crop failures occurred in 1845 and 1846 as a result of a new disease, termed late blight, which had not been present in Ireland before and which caused up to 75% of the crop to be destroyed. The cause of the disease was not discovered until 1861 when a fungus (which is now known to be an oomycete pathogen), Phytophthora infestans, was shown to be the infective agent. The disease was accidentally introduced with potatoes from central Mexico, which is now known to be the centre of origin of the disease.

Hyaloperonospora brassicae causes downy mildew on brassicas. Albugo candida causes white rust on crucifers. Bacteria There are about 1600 known bacterial species and only about 100 of these are parasites of plants.

This means that production of food and other agricultural crops will have to increase significantly in future years. However, this must be done without putting additional strain on natural ecosystems and the global climate (agriculture is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions). Pests of Crops 33 Historically, many of the improvements in crop protection were by-products of new developments in agronomic practice. The use of crop rotations, growing local crop varieties and the better control of water and drainage are good examples of this (Thacker, 2002).
