PROTECTING OUR FOOD SUPPLY

A current and a retired professor of entomology at Kansas State University have teamed up to produce Stored Product Protection,, a book that perhaps should be required reading for anyone who likes to eat on a regular basis.

The book contains 31 chapters and 350 pages, covering such topics as biology and ecology of insects, molds and vertebrates in storage systems; pests of grains and legumes, dried fruit and nuts; prevention and monitoring of pests; economics; regulations; marketing of stored commodities; insect-resistant packaging; and more.

Co-editors are Tom Phillips, currently professor of entomology, and David Hagstrum, retired from that position.
