      Exotic pests and diseases have long been an important concern in agriculture. The problem is becoming increasingly urgent and complex because agricultural trade has been liberalized worldwide, and as a consequence, the probability of spreading a disease or a pest through national borders has become a real threat, not only for the agricultural industry but also for human health and .

Agricultural pest management control strategies are primarily concerned with food security and safety. opular pest control methods include P of synthetic application pesticides, biopesticides (plant extracts), non-chemical pest management and integrated pest management (IPM). The .

    Many biological studies on insect management do not consider economics or fundamental economic principles. This book brings together economists and entomologists to explain the principles, successes, and challenges of effective insect management. It highlights the importance of economic analyses for decision making and the feasibility of such approaches, and examines integrated pest management. Agriculture and Animal Husbandry. This book covers the following topics: Study of Soil and Climate, Plant Nutrients, Manures and Fertilizers, Field Crops, Horticulture Crops, Different diseases of Crop Plants, Pests of Crops Plants, Weeds and Weed Control, Plant Propagation and Nursery, Advance Techniques in Agriculture, Green House and Poly House, Feeds and Fodders, study of Cattle, Breeding.

The Economics of Pest Control. The scientific study of pests and pest control strategies is often called economic entomology in recognition of the financial impact insects have on industry, agriculture, and human society in general.

To be sure, economically important insects are not always pests; we have already stressed their value as pollinators, natural enemies, producers of silk, honey, etc. Agricultural Economics.

agricultural production, particularly in Europe and in developing regions such as China, India and Latin America (van Lenteren et al., ). The com-mercial industry built around this approach to pest control validates its economic viability in some production systems and regions of the world.

Finally, conservation biological control involves. Agriculture is the science and art of cultivating plants and livestock. Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that enabled people to live in cities.

The history of agriculture began thousands of years ago. After gathering wild grains beginning at leastyears ago, nascent farmers (01) China:Integrated Pest Management: Current Concepts and Ecological Perspective presents an overview of alternative measures to traditional pest management practices using biological control and biotechnology.

The removal of some highly effective broad-spectrum chemicals, caused by concerns over environmental health and public safety, has resulted in the development of alternative, reduced risk crop. The book begins by establishing an economic framework upon which to apply the principles of IPM.

It continues to examine the entomological applications of economics, specifically, economic analyses concerning chemical, biological, and genetic control tactics as well as host plant resistance and the cost of sampling and is illustrated with case.Using resource economics techniques, the existing value of these services (such things as biological control of pests) is estimated and then habitat manipulation ("ecological engineering") is used to enhance these services on farmland to provide profit and real evidence of sustainability.PEST analysis is also done to assess the potential of a new market.

The general rule is that the more negative forces are affecting that market the harder it is to do business in it. The difficulties that will have to be dealt with significantly reduce profit potential and the firm can simply decide not to engage in any activity in that market.
