The challenges posed by pests in vegetable cultivation are evolving rapidly in response to changes in cropping systems and environmental conditions. Given the potential negative impacts of synthetic pesticides that are difficult to break down, a comprehensive approach that incorporates host plant resistance, cultural and biological management strategies, and the use of safe pesticidal chemicals is necessary to address this complex and delicate issue.

This book presents an extensive examination of the host range, distribution, identification marks, and bionomics of pests, as well as the use of protected cultivation, host plant resistance, biological control, and pesticide residue management strategies. It has been authored by experts from various reputable institutes across India.

This book will be of use to students, professors, and teachers of horticulture, plant protection, acarology, and nematology, as well as progressive farmers, extension workers, plant protection specialists, and policy makers. It will serve as a valuable resource and a must-have for every library's collection.
