Exploiting biodiversity for sustainable pest management

T.W. Mew, E. Borromeo, B. Hardy

An increased awareness that rice fields must be considered in totality as an ecosystem, rather than considering only one or two target populations of insects or pathogens, has led to growing interest in the application of ecological concepts to pest management.

Slash-and-burn rice systems in the hills of northern Lao PDR: description, challenges, and opportunities

Slash-and-burn rice systems in the hills of northern Lao PDR: description, challenges, and opportunities

W. Roder

Slash-and-burn agriculture is considered to be one of the oldest land-use systems (Spencer 1966). Although the practice has long disappeared in temperate regions, it is still common in tropical and subtropical areas and is said to be practiced by at least 300 million people, involving up to 30% of the global exploitable soils (Warner 1991).
