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.
An integrated pest management (IPM) system, or an integrated crop management (ICM) system can never be a prescriptive, ‘off the shelf’ package. A grower must look at all the options available to him or her and make an informed decision as to which measures to take. 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.

El control de malezas es una operación que requiere mucho tiempo y dinero. Con frecuencia constituye una elevado proporción del costo del cultivo.
Las cebollas tienen un sistema radical limitado y sus hojas nunca cubren completamente al suelo, por lo que son malas competidoras de las malezas. Para obtener un buen rendimiento es necesario mantener a estas bajo control.
The mints are grown for the essential oils that they produce in specialized glands on the leaves and stems. This oil is readily recovered by steam distillation of the harvested hay. Peppermint and spearmint oils are widely used to flavor chewing gum, candy, pharmaceuticals, toothpaste and other oral hygiene products. More than 30% of the mint oil produced in the U.S. is exported to Europe and other countries around the world.
