About The Books

India is a major producer of mango, and exports huge quantity of the fruit to Europe, Middle East and other countries. To maintain the exports, fruit quality with regard to pest infestation , especially the fruit fly, an important quarantine pest, is of primary significance. The fruit flies attack maturing mangoes, and cause 5-95% economic loss depending on the variety. In recent years, the fly infestation has also become a major constraint in the export of mangoes from India. The present book offers standard and ready-to-use solutions to the mango growers for the management of fruit fly infestation. The book is spread over nine elaborated chapters contributed by the leading experts in the respective fields, and covers all important aspects of cultivation, breeding, fruit fly management and quarantine issues in mango. Each chapter is prepared in a palpable manner and is supported by self explanatory diagrams and photos. The book shall serve as an important resource and a reference material to the students, researchers, scientist, extension officers of Agriculture, Horticulture, Entomology, Nematology, Zoology and Botany, and growers of mango and other fruit crops.
