Arkansas Pest Management- Insects, Weeds, and Plant Diseases

"Pest" can mean insects, pathogens causing plant disease, and weeds that cause economic damage to crops. 

Pest management refers to "managing" the number of pests through some sort of intervention, whether cultural, mechanical or chemical.  Managing a pest does not mean eradicating the pest -- those are two very different concepts with different objectives.  Viable, long-term management strategies rely on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as an approach that is sustainable, beneficial to the environment and to the bottom line of the grower.  PAM Weed Control Program
