A survey portfolio for the characterization of rice pest constraints

A survey portfolio for the characterization of rice pest constraints

S. Savary, F.A. Elazegui, P.S. Teng

Within any geographic area where pest management is to be improved or adapted to agricultural changes, there is a need for characterization to define domains for research and technology development and subsequent technology extrapolation (Teng and Savary 1992, Savary et al 1994). Characterization requires that reliable, representative field data be available. A common approach is to collect such data using sample surveys.

This document offers a set of field techniques to address this diversity and presents statistical methods to exploit information that is diverse in nature, precision, and accuracy.
