Our population is growing, but the per capita availability of land and water resources are going down. It is obvious that we will have to produce more and more from less and less land and water. This can be achieved only through the evergreen revolution pathway which can help us to increase productivity in perpetuity without associated ecological harm. Growing demand must be met primarily by increasing production on land already under cultivation and by reducing losses due to diseases and pests. Increase in agricultural production is the key to all-over economic growth of the country.

This book provides integrated information on different management strategies about beneficial insect. This is the basic requirement for successful agriculture/horticulture. Growers in the field of agriculture get benefit from the natural pest control provided by beneficial insects. This book was developed to raise awareness of these helpful animals. Here we discuss their ecology and offer realistic strategies for conserving and enhancing them on working farms. In this book you’ll learn why you should conserve beneficial insects, how they can help control pests, and how you can protect and restore beneficial insect habitat. You’ll also find additional information on the insects themselves, specific native plants that support them. This book provides a broad overview of the principles of conservation biocontrol, as well as an introduction to the important groups of beneficial insects that you may find on your farm. Because pests and beneficial insects vary among cropping systems and regions, it is difficult to provide specific advice that will control pests in all situations. Additionally, we do not always know the thresholds at which some beneficial insects will provide pest control for a given cropping system. We’ve been amazingly lucky to work with a huge range of farmers and ranchers across the country who are actively managing their land for beneficial insects. We hope the book will be widely read and utilized by policymakers, scientists, research scholars and farmers.

We hope that you’ll take this guidance, adapt it, build upon it, and in turn share with us your own experiences.
