Challenges in coordinating regional biological control projects in Africa: classical biological control versus augmentative biological control



Challenges in coordinating regional biological control projects in Africa: classical biological control versus augmentative biological control



Biocontrol News and Information 23(4): 101N-107N



Differences in agricultural systems in Africa on the one hand, changes of policy environments on the other hand and the challenges these present for plant protection are discussed. The rapid advance of biological control in Africa in the last 15 years is highlighted, and the advantages of and opportunities for further biological control in this region are considered.
