Provides in tabular form: pests controlled, plant characteristics, characteristics of the active materials, method of preparation/extraction, method of application, cautions in use, and complementary plant uses. Appendix lists 500 pest species controlled, along with the plants that control them. Contains nearly 1,400 references.
