Agricultural insect control

, : Agricultural insect control.

This manual is for individuals in Iowa who wish to become certified commercial pesticide applicators in the Agricultural Insect Control category. The manual supplements the Iowa Core Manual. Integrated pest management techniques using cultural, mechanical, biological, and chemical control strategies are stressed. Crop specific and common control treatments are recommended for corn, soybean and alfalfa pests as well as general agricultural pests. Consideration is given to ecological concerns and chemical hazards such as phytotoxicity, pesticide residues, water contamination and insect resistance to treatment. Color photographs aid the applicator in identifying pests.
