Overview

Featuring more than 250 color photographs of pests and crops, and more than 100 drawings, this book, with its authoritative text, enables you to identify pests quickly--and to prevent, correct, or live with most common pest problems. Crop tables at the end of the book describe major pests on 30 vegetable and fruit tree crops and refer you to specific pages for more detail.
The book's approach minimizes the use of broad spectrum pesticides, relying primarily on alternatives such as: biological control; resistant varieties; traps and barriers; less toxic pesticides such as soaps, oils, and microbials; changing planting, irrigation, or cultivating procedures; and other preventive measures.
Includes: landscape designs that prevent pests; planting, irrigating, other plant care activities that prevent potential problems; resistant varieties; biological controls (use of parasites, predators, or pathogens); less-toxic pesticides such as soaps, oil, and microbials; mulches and other physical and mechanical controls; references, suppliers list, and glossary.Now in an extensively revised new edition, the highly successful Pests of the Garden and Small Farm adapts scientifically based integrated pest management techniques to the needs of the home gardener and small-scale farmer.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This second and newly revised edition is an indispensable and authoritative manual for small-scale fruit and vegetable growers. Written by the director of the education and publication division of the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Project, University of California at Davis, the guide comprehensively covers the biology of crop pests and their control through sound cultivation practices and a minimum use of pesticides. Incorporated in this edition is new information about horticultural oils, solarization techniques, and recently introduced biocontrols. Since it deals with crop pests in California, growers outside the state and other mild-temperate/subtropical regions might find some of the information (e.g., pests of citrus and avocado) irrelevant. The index to the book could have been more inclusive, with referencing of the scientific names of all pests described. Also, a list of the commercial sources for biological pesticides would have been very helpful. Nevertheless, this is an incomparable resource--an essential purchase for all horticultural collections, especially in the West. For general readers and specialists alike.--Brian Lym, City Coll.
