Biocontrol refers to the use of biological agents, such as fiingi and nematodes, in the mitigation and control of other issues with biological agents at their root, such as germ induced diseases, pests, weeds etc. With the rising thrust on quality control in all areas of human endeavour, it has become imperative to understand biocontrol science and technology.
This book has been written with the aim of getting an insight into this science and exploring its tremendous potential. Though as of yet not fully developed, biocontrol science promises to bring forth many miracles, and usher in new areas of progress. Examining and assessing the principles, the techniques, the goals and prospects of this field, it also takes a look at the numerous biocontrol programmes that have been undertaken in recent years, and analyses the reasons for their failures, elucidating on how these can be reduced, and further steps for progress in this field. Also under cover are the numerous trends and developments in this field, and the book also takes a look at where all this is heading.
