Chapter synopsis: Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an ecosystem approach to crop production and protection that combines different management strategies and practices to grow healthy crops and minimize the use of pesticides. This chapter looks at how IPM can be applied to barley production, considering the different disease threats, the tools available and possible approaches to deploying them. The chapter evaluates varietal disease resistance, the range of crop protectants available and how agronomy can be used optimise these tools. The chapter also reviews the sources of knowledge available and the means and barriers to IPM use in practice. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future research trends in this area.
