Integrated Pest Management
- Agroecosystem, agrosystem
Agricultural ecosystem. An ecosystem that is managed to optimize the production of a crop plant or part of it.
- Biological control
Use or manipulation of natural enemies (predators, parasitoids, or diseases of pests) to suppress pest populations.
- Crop resistance to pests
One or more qualities that some crop plant varieties have resulting in less damage by a number of pest individuals in comparison with a variety without those qualities when it is exposed to the same pest numbers.
- Damage caused by a pest
Damage is the monetary value lost to the commodity as a result of injury by the pest, for instance, by yield reduction.
- Economic injury level of a pest
The pest population density at which the cost to control the pest equals the amount of damage it inflicts.
- Economic threshold of a pest
The pest population density at which a control measure has to be taken to prevent population from reaching the economic injury level.
