Part of a series, this book is written principally for extension staff and other agricultural development officers, teachers and trainers who act in a similar capacity. Each book provides the background, information and knowledge necessary for a basic understanding of an aspect of agriculture, and demonstrates detailed improved practical techniques, which can be extended to farmers. It emphasizes appropriate, low-input technology, drawing on the strengths of traditional agriculture and gives examples of both the problems and solutions in the village context. This book covers pest and disease damage, causative agents and methods of combating them. As well as manual and cultural techniques, it describes the knapsack sprayer and its maintenance and covers protection against damage from larger animals and wind, using hedges and ditches.
