Strategy for Pesticide Use: Frequency and Applications Academic Article uri icon


  • A pest control model with multiple treatments is presented. Population dynamics and damage rates are temperature dependent with predation affected by pesticide application. Pesticide tolerance distribution is used for constructing the estimated kill function. Mathematical- numerical optimization is applied, selecting frequency and dosage which minimize control costs and crop damage. 1974 by The American Agricultural Economics Association.
