Product Description

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an approach to crop production that minimizes pest-related losses with as little cost to the grower and as little disruption of the environment as possible.  The IPM methods and strategies in Integrated Pest Management for Apples and Pears are intended for anyone interested in apple production.

This manual is organized into seven main sections.  The first chapter is on fruit growth and development.  The second details the general management practices on which most pest management guidelines are based.  Chapters on the five major categories of orchard pests (vertebrates, insects & mites, diseases, nematodes, and weeds) follow.  Introduction to each chapter explains where and when major pests occur and gives general monitoring guidelines.  Each chapter has detailed descriptions and photographs of individual pests, the damage they cause, and specific guidelines for enhancing natural contol factors, designing a monitoring program, and using control actions effectively.

Contents:  Climate, Growing regions, Development & growth requirements, Managing pests, Vertebrates, Insects & mites, Diseases, Nematodes, Weeds, References, Suppliers, Glossary.
