Dynamic Black Cutworm Action ThresholdIntegrated Crop Management News
AbstractTwo things must be balanced when deciding whether to apply pesticide: the cost of control and the value of the commodity that will be saved. Action thresholds are commonly used in field crop entomology, and are defined as the pest density at which chemical controls should be applied. Action thresholds are generally meant to be dynamic based on crop market value and ever-changing control costs.
