The Editors of Crop Protection especially welcome papers describing an interdisciplinary approach showing how different control strategies can be integrated into practical pest management programmes. Crop Protection particularly emphasizes the practical aspects of control in the field, and includes work which may lead in the near future to more effective control. The journal does not duplicate the many existing excellent biological science journals, which deal mainly with the more fundamental aspects of plant pathology, applied zoology and weed science. Crop Protection covers all practical aspects of pest, disease and weed control, including the following topics: Control of diseases of crop plants caused by microorganisms Control of animal pests of world crops Control of weeds Assessment of pest and disease damage Epidemiology of pests and diseases in relation to control Development of pesticides Biorational pesticides Effects of plant growth regulators Pesticide application methods Genetic engineering applications Environmental effects of pesticides Importance and control of postharvest crop losses Economic considerations Biological control Agronomic control methods Integrated control Pest management Interrelationships between different control strategies Abiotic damage Food safety The editors of Crop Protection invite workers concerned with pest, disease and weed control to submit suitable contributions on any topic falling within the aims and scope of the journal.
