Why does a pesticide work well one time and not so well the next when everything seems the same? Variable weather could play a role. Or the pest could be less susceptible to the active ingredient. At other times, an inconsistent pesticide performance seems inexplicable.

Because each farmer’s situation is different, the types of IPM measures they implement may vary between regions and often even from farm to farm.
