Description

Intended for growers, as well as researchers, as both an educational tool and a reference manual, this full-color publication addresses the most important pest organisms with the potential to reduce mushroom yield and quality.

The section on IPM in mushroom growing describes how unique features of mushroom crops can be used effectively in IPM, and how the theory of IPM can be applied effectively.
