  • Synopsis
    Although birds are not normally viewed as pests, in the case of cereals and soft fruits both resident and migrant species can cause significant losses to farmers. This handbook provides the background information needed for an understanding of the birds which cause the damage, their identification, biology and feeding habits. It also presents the variety of techniques necessary to assess the likelihood and extent of crop damage and so facilitate the choice of cost-effective methods and levels of control. A comprehensive reference book for policy-makers and extensionists, and also to all public and private sector management staff who are involved in loss assessment and the implementation of control methods in cereal production.
