This is largely because An ests that survive the a lication will y p pp Before pesticide After pesticide produce additional resistant pests This is application app39ication nota First generation Pesticide resistance can be prevented by Later generation Integrated pest management IPM One concept that has become important in pest management is IPM IPM is a series of pest management evaluations and decisions that consider There are four principles of IPM Prevention Thresholds Monitoring pest Control Prevention Manage the crop in such a way that pests do not become a threat Thresholds The
