Pests of the Garden and Small Farm (3rd Edition)

This classic handbook adapts scientifically based integrated pest management techniques to the needs of the home gardener and small-scale farmer. 95 common pests are described, covering insects, mites, plant diseases, nematodes, and weeds of fruit and nut trees and vegetables using the IPM approach of making minimal use of broad-spectrum pesticides; the methods recommended here rely primarily on organically acceptable alternatives. Crop-by-crop symptom identification tables guide you quickly to the information you need.
