Adaptation of Current Threshold Techniques for Different Farm Operations. L. E. Gholson, Assistant Professor, Department of Plant Science, University of Wyoming, Laramie 82071. Plant Dis. 71:462-465. Accepted for publication 20 November 1986. Copyright 1987 The American Phytopathological Society. DOI: 10.1094/PD-71-0462.

A review of the literature points out the distinct need for more multidisciplinary work in developing economic thresholds for diseases, weeds, and insect pests in crops. Further work needs to be conducted to make current technological pest management information applicable and understandable at the farm level. Examples of successful uses of a variety of threshold models are presented.
