The report is concerned with testing chemicals in foliar applications to field crops, forage crops, rangeland, and vegetable crops (field and greenhouse), to establish their efficaciousness in protecting these crops from economic injury by insects and mites. In addition, test methods should take into consideration environmental involvement from such applications and the effect of pesticides on beneficial organisms. Test methods should be broad enough to provide information on the use of dosages of pesticides often required for pest population regulation in integrated pest management systems. The methods described in this report are not to be considered exclusive of other methods. Certain situations may require special methods, and new methods may be developed which improve on present ones.
