Description: Featuring more than 250 color photographs of pests and crops, and more than 100 drawings, this book, with its authoritative text, enables you to identify pests quickly--and to prevent, correct, or live with most common pest problems. Crop tables at the end of the book describe major pests on 30 vegetable and fruit tree crops and refer you to specific pages for more detail.

Includes: landscape designs that prevent pests; planting, irrigating, other plant care activities that prevent potential problems; resistant varieties; biological controls (use of parasites, predators, or pathogens); less-toxic pesticides such as soaps, oil, and microbials; mulches and other physical and mechanical controls; references, suppliers list, and glossary.Now in an extensively revised new edition, the highly successfulPests of the Garden and Small Farmadapts scientifically based integrated pest management techniques to the needs of the home gardener and small-scale farmer.
