Integrated Crop Protection in Cereals

By R. Cavalloro Copyright 1988

    This book contains 33 papers, presented at the meeting "Integrated Crop protection in Cereals", on recent developments in research into integral control of invertebrate pests, diseases and weeds, together with economic appraisals of applying such research to model farming systems.
