Pest and Pesticide Usage Patterns in Arizona Cotton: Final 2000 Date
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractArizona's pesticide use reporting (PUR) database is used to track and quantify the general decline in pesticide use in the state. A full summary of the official 2000 growing season pesticide usage is included. The database also enables tracking of changing usage patterns. For two years, target pest information has been included in the Arizona PUR database. Limitations in the PUR database are discussed. The reporting coverage shortfall for insecticide reports in the PUR database is estimated and found to be reasonable relative to sample based approaches to pesticide use reporting.
