Aphids as crop pests.

Book cover for Aphids as crop pests.


This book contains 33 chapters focusing on taxonomy, population dynamics, biological characteristics, feeding behaviour, crop damage, disease transmission, control, monitoring and forecasting of aphid pests of various crops. The efficacy of various methods (biological, chemical, cultural and host resistance) and their combinations for the control of these aphid pests are also discussed.
