Part of the Crop Protection Monographs book series (CROP)


The scope of advisory work in pest and disease management, its professional, legal and organizational framework, and the supporting services it relies on, clearly comprise a great diversity of objectives and approaches. The differences are most pronounced where such work in developed farm economies is compared with that in less developed ones. In considering how far the advisory systems evolved answer the needs for pest control advice, and what developments are to be desired, we shall unavoidably repeat some of the material and views presented in earlier chapters, especially in Chapter 2.6.
