The synergism of biocontrol and plant resistance: a path to advance IPM to higher levels of integration

Code: 9781838799601
Marcos Kogan, Oregon State University, USA

Chapter synopsis: This chapter reviews the future evolution of integrated pest management (IPM). It identifies the ways modern agriculture has disrupted plant defences and the control of pests by their natural enemies. The chapter discusses ways of restoring and enhancing these controls both through breeding and the use of biological methods. It demonstrates how IPM can be taken to the next level with a case study of a pome fruit IPM program in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.
