Module 4: Pest, Disease and Weed Management
World crops: Cool season food legumes pp Cite as. The plant architecture, chemistry and world distribution of food legumes contribute to the large number of associated pests, diseases and weeds. Early weed control is essential; otherwise the pre-flowering plant has considerable powers of compensation for damage, especially if disease resistant cultivars can be planted. After flowering, the potential for compensation is progressively reduced and so the development of economic thresholds as well as reliable monitoring and forecasting systems are needed to maximise the efficiency of minimum pesticide, chosen carefully to integrate pest and disease management.
