Integrated pest management, semiochemicals and microbial pest-control agents in Latin American agriculture
Rodríguez, Luis C.
Niemeyer Marich, August
Some selected issues regarding integrated pest management (IPM) development and adoption in Latin America are explored in relation to the characteristics of Latin American farmers, and the strategies of donors and practitioners for IPM research and development. The challenge is facing the complexity of IPM and the extensive presumptions regarding the farmer's problems and needs. Emphasis is on IPM practices involving semiochemicals and microbial pest-control agents, which are reviewed from a Latin American perspective both for the market of IPM products, and the regulatory directives for registration and use of semiochemicals. Finally, IPM research in Latin America is reviewed.
