Ipm Basics

Integrated pest management (IPM) is an approach to pest control that considers all management options to maintain pests below an economic injury level. Scouting provides an objective summary of the crop condition and pest situation in a field. Every season should begin with the recording of vital field information on soil fertility and crop inputs. This information, combined with regular scouting, accurate identification and diagnosis of problems and a record of those observations, makes for a successful crop monitoring program.
