Novel Approaches on Site-Specific Integrated Pest Management
ASA Section: Agronomic Production Systems
Most pests don’t usually follow a structured pattern of variability and in contrast, insect, weed, and plant pathogens generally are spatially dynamic (changing density and location over time) which present a challenge when dealing with their management. However, the power of precision agriculture technologies and related sciences such as spatial statistics, remote sensing, robotics , geographic information systems, and global positioning systems, among others have made possible the development and implementation of site-specific integrated pest management strategies. Presenters of this oral session will provide information on how precision agriculture technologies and related sciences are currently used for mapping and application of control and management tactics related to IPM, as well as a discussion of the limitations for site-specific IPM implementation.
Approved for 2.0 IPM CEUs.
