Beneficial and injurious insects can be identified and managed with the help of the newly published, Handbook of Forage and Rangeland Insects (180 pages). The book provides practical field strategies for growers, updating them on the latest protection techniques, and preventing crop loss by using outdated pest-control procedures.
Land managers, consultants, extension personnel, researchers, teachers, and students will find it helpful, too. It covers forage and rangeland production, arthropods and their management, comprehensive information and photographs for injurious arthropods and for beneficial organisms.
The book includes more than 250 color photographs and maps, injury and illustrated insect identification keys, glossary, and index. It was published in partnership with the American Phytopathological Society (APS) and the Entomological Society of America (ESA).
