Vegetables serve as a crucial source of essential nutrients, including dietary fibers, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. The increasing awareness of the significance of vegetables in maintaining human health has led to a rise in their production worldwide. China currently holds the top position globally, producing approximately 237 million tons of vegetables annually. In India, the production of vegetables during the year 2009-10 amounted to around 90 million tons.

While pesticides play a vital role in sustainable vegetable production, their improper use can result in negative consequences for both the environment and human health. Overuse of pesticides can lead to resistance in pests and diseases, and can also harm natural enemies that provide biological control. This book aims to promote the integration of appropriate chemical, cultural, physical, genetic, and biological technologies into IPM strategies for the protection of vegetable crops.
