Development and Validation of a Simulation Model of Pink Bollworm Population Dynamics
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractA process- oriented simulation model of pink bollworm population dynamics in commercial cotton has been developed. The model, written in FORTRAN, is driven primarily by temperature and crop phenology. In addition to key ecological parameters, the model incorporates the impact of multiple insecticide applications. The model is presently being validated and modified for use as an on-line management tool.
