The issue of resistance of pests, including plant pathogenic fungi and bacteria, insects, mites, nematodes and weeds, to pesticides is very relevant to sustainable agriculture and horticulture. The New Zealand Plant Protection Society has been proactive in documenting and highlighting pesticide resistance for many years. Society members have developed strategies that have been ratified by industry for a range of horticultural, arable and pastoral crops and their pests. This book provides a permanent record of all the current strategies and will give farmers, growers and consultants the opportunity to have the information on hand for quick reference during daily activities.
