Pest Control for Sustainable Agriculture talks about the control of pests for the attainment of sustainable agriculture. It further comprises the use of bio-pesticides as sustainable solutions for management of pests in legume crops and stimulation of plant growth and biocontrol by bacillus amyloliquefaciens. This book also discusses about arachidonic acid as an elicitor of the plant defense response to phyto-pathogens, microbial diversity of vermi-compost bacteria that exhibit useful agricultural traits and waste management potential, impacts of glyphosate-based herbicides on disease resistance and health of crops, recent progress on the genetics and molecular breeding of brown plant hopper resistance in rice, fungal and bacterial nematicides in integrated nematode management strategies, natural enemies associated with some economic pests in egyptian agro-ecosystems, biocontrol of wilt-nematode complex infecting gerbera by bacillus subtilis under protected cultivation, effect of melia azedarach (sapindales: meliaceae) fruit extracts on citrus leaf miner phyllocnistis citrella (lepidoptera: gracillariidae), effectiveness of different entomopathogenic nematode species against the variegated cutworm, peridroma saucia (hubner) (lepidoptera: noctuidae), potential impact of host pest fed on bt-modified corn on the development of chrysoperla carnea (stephens) (neuroptera: chrysopidae).
