Biopesticides have readily available sources, they are effective and easily biodegradable, exhibit various modes of action, cheaper, inherently less toxic to humans and the environment. They do not leave harmful residues, and are usually more specific to target pests. The use of biopesticides is markedly safer for the environment and users, and more sustainable than the application of chemicals, and are therefore used as potential alternatives to synthetic pesticides, especially as components in Integrated Pest Management strategies. The book Biopesticides: Botanicals and Microorganisms for Improving Agriculture and Human Health is a collection of articles, up to date reviews and research contributions from both developed and developing countries. It emphasises the current issues of importance and the progress made in the fields of agricultural, environmental and soil microbiology, plant pathology and ethnobotany, and aims to bring together all available and relevant information on biopesticides. It comprises 12 Chapters on emerging issues on biopesticides from important and useful botanicals to beneficial microorganisms that show great potential in both agriculture and human health. The book will be of immense help to both the undergraduate and postgraduate students, biologists and agriculturists, who would like to broaden their knowledge and gain substantial experience about biopesticides in agriculture and health, this will enable them to contribute significantly in making the world a safer and healthier place.

There are four areas to consider related to control of garden pests. Prevention Pest Management Weed Management Disease Management Though related, these areas need their own attention and procedures for control. This book focuses on Pest Management. Organic gardening relies primarily on biological and cultural practices to manage pests, weeds, and diseases, but thinking that organic gardening means vegetables free of any chemical pesticides is not quite right. Organic pesticides are derived from naturally occurring substances. They need to be extracted, processed or concentrated from the natural source, but they are generally not chemically changed. In contrast, "synthetic" pesticides are usually derived from petroleum sources and the chemistry of the molecules is changed to give a desired product. Why are organic pesticides preferred by some gardeners? They breakdown rapidly in the environment after application, they act to prevent further insect feeding and many have a low toxicity to people and animals. Organic gardeners can use certain pesticides -- chemicals that are derived from botanical and mineral-bearing sources. These chemicals break down more rapidly than common synthetic chemicals. Long term natural pest control is the most cost effective approach to managing insect pests. This method provides stable, continuous suppression of pests by promoting their natural enemies. The long term approach is also the least toxic method of controlling insects. Chemicals are normally not needed and should be used only as a last resort. Pesticides Permitted in Organic Gardening As a general rule, most pesticides are prohibited for organic production. The use of botanical and mineral-bearing pesticides can also be incorporated into an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to growing crops. IPM relies on a variety of pest control means rather than on one product or method. The pesticides discussed in this book are appropriate to include in IPM programs. Organic pesticides fall into five broad groups: Botanical Microbial Mineral Household Remedies Plant Barriers and Insect Traps Botanical pesticides are obtained from the roots, leaves, seeds, stems or flowers of plants. Many plants manufacture chemical compounds that protect them from pest attack. Once identified, people began using these chemicals to protect valued plants against similar pests. Microbial pesticides contain pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi or nematodes. These microorganisms serve as natural enemies to some insects and control natural population outbreaks under certain conditions. Manufacturing processes have allowed the application of these microbial pesticides in the form of sprays, dusts, baits or granules to control pest outbreaks. Mineral-based pesticides are derived from inorganic chemicals. They are crystalline, stable chemicals that do not evaporate but generally dissolve easily in water. Household remedies center around repurposing various detergents and chemicals used around the house for pest control. Plant barriers, companion planting and insect traps constitute the fifth tool for organic gardening and control of pests.

New and Future Developments in Microbial Biotechnology and Bioengineering: Trends of Microbial Biotechnology for Sustainable Agriculture and Biomedicine Systems: Diversity and Functional Perspectives describes how specific techniques can be used to generalize the metabolism of bacteria that optimize biologic improvement strategies and bio-transport processes. Microbial biotechnology focuses on microbes of agricultural, environmental, industrial, and clinical significance. This volume discusses several methods based on molecular genetics, systems, and biology of synthetic, genomic, proteomic, and metagenomics. Recent developments in our understanding of the role of microbes in sustainable agriculture and biotechnology have created a highly potential research area. The soil and plant microbiomes have a significant role in plant growth promotion, crop yield, soil health and fertility for sustainable developments. The microbes provide nutrients and stimulate plant growth through different mechanisms, including solubilization of phosphorus, potassium, and zinc; biological nitrogen fixation; production of siderophore, ammonia, HCN and other secondary metabolites which are antagonistic against pathogenic microbes. This new book provides an indispensable reference source for engineers/bioengineers, biochemists, biotechnologists, microbiologists, agrochemists, and researchers who want to know about the unique properties of this microbe and explore its sustainable agriculture future applications. Introduces the principles of microbial biotechnology and its application in plant growth and soil health for sustainable agriculture Explores various plant microbiomes and their beneficial impact on plant growth for crop improvement Explains the mechanisms of plant-microbe interaction and plant growth promotion Includes current applications of microbial consortium for enhance production of crop in eco-friendly manners
