Project Summary

This project will evaluate the relative contribution to yield of the various parts of a multi-input management system and compare the relative economics of the various systems. The researchers will compare ten management options for maximizing return on input investment. One of those options will be to base management decisions on an Integrated Pest Management Program.

Project Objectives
