We depend on plants for food and other consumer products. Millions of dollars are spent every year to buy, grow, and harvest plants. To maintain healthy plants and to increase yield, many people use pesticides to control weeds, insects, and plant diseases. While pesticides can be important tools, using an integrated approach can be helpful in achieving long-term control of the pest. That means using your knowledge of the pest, understanding of the environmental conditions, and monitoring plant health.
