Intervention of Modern Genetic Tools for Managing Insect Pests of Fruit Crops

G. S. Miglani, S. Singh, Z. Li and R. K. Sandhu,  Genetic Methods and Tools for Managing Crop Pests,  2022.

Merits and demerits of select modern genetic tools as sterile insect technique, repressible dominant lethal, engineering insect pests, transgenic crops, primary resistance management, gene silencing RNA interference, genome-editing-based methods, autocidal insect control techniques, and genomics approaches for pest management have been discussed. Application of these methods to manage insect pests of fruit crops have been dealt with. Finally, new vision to pest control and future prospects in the utilization of molecular genetics-based tools for insect pest management has been presented.
