dc.descriptionNYS IPM Type: Project Report
dc.description.abstractThe typical Baseline Farm Data collected covers income and number of employees for an operation. It is unlikely that the impacts created from improving growers' ability to manage insect pests would create measurable changes to either. There is potential impact on the time and labor required for insect pest management but it is likely very specific to the individual farm, depending on the amount of time currently spent scouting and applying pesticides or other pest management activities. In some cases, the time and labor expense could increase, while in others it could decrease. In neither case is it likely to shift total farm sales. It is also conceivable that, for a large operation, a significant increase in scouting duties would encourage a grower to increase the work force by hiring a dedicated scout. Our results to date haven't shown that.
