PESTICIDE RESISTANCE: What It Is and How To Avoid It

Cloyd, Raymond
July 2012
American Rose;Jul/Aug2012, Vol. 41 Issue 10, p68
The article presents pesticide resistance in pest population. It explores the influence of genetics in the ability of insects or mites to survive exposure to pesticide application and how survivors transfer resistant traits to their next generation. It discusses selection pressure, genes for resistance, and secondary pest outbreak.
