Integrated Pest Management (IPM) has achieved notable success in temperate regions; however, its impact in tropical areas remains less clear. Tropical regions confront distinct obstacles, including weather patterns that affect insect life cycles and pesticide application. By examining current pest conditions, biological and chemical control methods, and emerging technologies, this book offers a comprehensive, research-based overview of IPM in tropical agriculture.

This book will be a valuable resource for entomologists, agronomists, horticulturists, and environmental scientists, as well as those working in nature conservation in the tropics. It is designed to serve as a reference book for students, teachers, researchers, extension professionals, and policy planners involved in insect pest management in tropical regions. Additionally, this book can be used as supplementary reading material in graduate and postgraduate courses.
