Arthropod Management Tests
Now Included in PMN

PMN’s suite of online resources welcomes the addition of Arthropod Management Tests 2005 contributed by the Entomological Society of America. AMT publishes reports on tests for management of arthropods that may be harmful (pests and disease vectors of plants, animals and humans) or beneficial (parasitoids, predators and diseases of pests, honey bees, silkworm, etc.). Pest management methods may use chemical pesticides and other materials such as insect growth regulators, semiochemicals, traps, bio-control agents, pest-resistant plants and animals. Users can search by host, author, scientific or common name of insects, and the brand name or chemical name of any material evaluated. AMT joins other efficacy trials—B&C Tests, F&N Tests, and Variety Trials—under the “Resources” tab on the Plant Management Network homepage.
