A definitive guide to the development, application, and use of biopesticides as a complementary or alternative treatment to chemical pesticides. Biopesticides: Use and Delivery brings together for the first time all the latest advances in the control of insects, plant diseases, and weeds with biopesticides. Coverage extends from the science and technology of biofungicides, bioinsecticides, and bioherbicides to detailed management protocols. The many leading experts writing here review their development, mode of action, production, delivery systems (formulations), and future market prospects. In addition, experts from both government and industry discuss current registration requirements, including time frame and costs of registration, and compare these with the registration requirements for conventional pesticides.
