Chapter 6 (Page no: 118)

Pesticide and transgenic plant resistance management in the field.

This chapter reviews the different resistance management techniques, highlighting current examples of arthropod resistance management in the field. Specifically, this chapter addresses any generalizations that can be made about integrated pest management (IPM) and, more importantly, considers the barriers to field implementation of resistance management techniques and suggests further research to improve IPM strategies, tactics, and tools. Moreover, a portion of the chapter summarizes the use of transgenic Bt crops and their role in IPM.
