This book covers the statistical concepts of sampling in agricultural pest management. These can be summarized as how to obtain sample data from the field and how to use the data in decision-making. Options may include introducing natural enemies, spraying with pesticide, or adopting a wait-and-see approach. Some prior knowledge of pests and how they interact with crops is required of the reader, but only minimal mathematical background is assumed. Worked examples using the mathematical software program Mathcad are also included.


Basic concepts of decision-making and sampling; classifying pest density; evaluating decision rules; theoretical distributions; Iwao's method and the SPRT; bootstrapping and resampling; multiple sources of variation; binomial counts; monitoring decision rules. (Part contents)
