Abstract

Three key issues need to be addressed for farmers and agronomists to develop economically successful management of pests in the upper Midwest. These include knowledge of the local presence of populations of the pest, the factors that affect pest infestations in the crop of interest, and the timing of both the crop's and related pest's developmental stages. For some insect pests, pheromone traps are useful in monitoring their arrival or emergence and from these; emergence patterns can be followed to focus scouting of fields. For plant diseases and some weeds, seasonal accumulated degree-day data can provide information useful in developing management plants
