Chemical control in stored products


Abstract: Insect pest management in raw stored grain and in grain-based finished products presents many challenges for the 21st century, especially when viewed on an international scale. The complexity of storage structures, economic aspects of utilizing chemical controls in different sectors encompassing stored products, regulatory and environmental considerations, a low tolerance for insect damage in finished products, and expectations of consumers are just a few examples that pose challenges for research. Selected key issues will be presented and discussed in relation to research needs for the future and how scientists involved in stored product research can address those needs.
