ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF ALFALFA INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT PRACTICES

By Clement E. Ward, Alan K. Dowdy, Richard C. Berberet and Jimmie F. Stritzke

Abstract

Integrated pest management (IMP) initially focused on insect pest control. More recently, IPM encompasses a broader concept of management, one which crosses several disciplinary boundaries. This article reports results of research dealing with four integrated management decisions for alfalfa (cultivar selection, inset control, weed control, and end-of-season harvest options.Crop Production/Industries,
