Use of GIS/GPS Systems in IPM: Progress and Reality
The applications of geographical information systems (GIS) and global positioning systems (GPS) in integrated pest management (IPM) are discussed. The following topics are included: targeted sampling and area-wide management of insect pests; mapping, remote sensing, aerial, satellite and multispectral imagery of weeds; spatial variability, microclimates, soil spatial variability and economic thresholds of plant diseases; and factors constraining the adoption of emerging technologies in IPM.
Emerging technologies for integrated pest management: concepts, research, and implementation. Proceedings of a Conference, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA, 8-10 March, 1999.
