Plant breeding or pesticides to narrow the yield gap?


Plant breeding or pesticides to narrow the yield gap?



10th International Congress of Plant Protection 1983 Volume 2 Proceedings of a conference held at Brighton, England, 20-25 November, 1983 Plant protection for human welfare: 803-809



It is concluded from a discussion on plant breeding as a means of increasing yields (including the control of insect pests) that pesticide sales are not threatened by crop resistance breeding at present.
