Integrated pest management and biological pest control strategies in mango cultivation

Code: 9781838794590
Stefano De Faveri, Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, Australia

Chapter synopsis: Integrated pest management (IPM) is the compatible use of various methods to control pests; methods include biological control, cultural control and chemical control. Chemical control should be used as a last resort and should be restricted to selective and less disruptive insecticides. This chapter provides an overview of IPM and addresses the problems associated with overreliance on chemical insecticides. The chapter explores pests of mango and the options for IPM. The chapter then includes four case studies drawn from Queensland, Australia, covering mango-scale monitoring and biological control, beneficial insects associated with mango planthopper, evaluation of pasture species for shelter and food for beneficial insects and fruit fly control. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future research trends in this area and recommends further reading on the subject.
