The present book is an attempt to analyse the problems and purpose, suitable measures for the effective management of the insect pests, plant diseases and plant parasitic nematodes. An effort has been done to compile possible database information in this book which contains 40 exhaustive and thought-provoking chapters by specialists in plant protection. Fifteen chapters deal with entomological problems as a whole covering chemosterility, transgenic technology, insect pests of mung and urdbean, IPM, modified atmosphere for control of insects in storage, eco-friendly management of potato pests, use of biotechnology tools in pest management and tissue culture and transgenic crops in pest management.
