Brassica oilseeds comprise canola, mustard, camelina and crambe and are the most important oilseed crops in the world. Among these, canola is the second largest oilseed crop providing 13% of the world’s supply. Seeds of these species commonly contain 40% or more oil and produce meals containing 35-40% protein. However, canola production has been in decline in recent years as a result of insect pest problems. These pest complexes often demand high insecticide application.

This book:

* is the only single compiled source of information on integrated management of canola and other Brassica oilseed pests
* presents the biology and management of all the major and minor pests of Brassica oilseed crops
* is an essential source of information for applied entomologists, crop protection researchers, extension agents and stake holders

The book has been written by an international team of pest management practitioners and researchers.
