    Biopesticides have a great influence in sustainable agriculture and their use in commercial farming ensures environmental protection, qualitative products, and effective use of resources. The second edition of Biopesticides Handbook is fully updated and includes five new chapters on microbial, biochemical, and RNAi pesticides. It details the benefits of biopesticides along the food chain, offering a full spectrum of the range of organisms and organic products that may be used in the biological control of pests. It discusses the uses and abuses of biopesticides, their positive and negative consequences, as well as more recent advances and the best mode of action to improve environmental safety.


    • Thoroughly updated, this edition explores not only the benefits but all aspects of biopesticides
    • Includes new chapters on the uses of biochemical and microbial pesticides and plant-incorporated-protectants
    • Discusses the new field of RNAi pesticides
    • Provides information on insect growth regulators and allelochemicals
    • Introduces a new chapter on the uses of biopesticides in food and medicinal crops.

    Intended for professionals, researchers, academics, and postgraduate students with experience in fields such as Chemistry, Biochemistry, Environmental Sciences, Ecology, and Agriculture. As well as those invested in the supply chain of agricultural products, such as farmers, growers, and other stakeholders.
