Features

  • A review of the oilseed rape crop
  • Pest management strategies
  • Parasitoids of specific pests or groups of pests
  • Sampling, trapping and rearing pests
  • Pest predators
  • The identification of hymenopterous parasitoids
  • Pathogens of oilseed rape pests
  • Predator taxonomy and identification
  • The impact of on-farm landscape structures and systems on predators

Oilseed rape, a major crop in many parts of the world, is attacked by a wide range of insect pests, many of which are of considerable economic importance. With the increasing demand to reduce agrochemical inputs on arable crops, the Commission of the European Communities supported a three-year programme in which scientific participants reviewed the natural enemies of oilseed rape insect pests. The various outputs from this important work form the basis of this comprehensive new book.

This book is an essential purchase for anyone with an interest in agricultural pest control strategies and for all those involved in oilseed rape.
