Insect Pest Management of Oilseed Crops, Tree Nuts and Dried Fruits

  • Shlomo Navarro

Chapter

Abstract

Many storage insects are polyphagous and some attack specific groups of products so that making difficult to classify them. Storage insects have generally a global distribution, and very seldom they are specific to a certain climatic zone or a specific crop. Stored product pest management literature is detailed in reference to cereals and their products but less information exists in relation with the three groups of commodities referred in the chapter, namely oilseed crops, tree nuts and dried fruits.
