Pest management programs for cotton, peanuts, and tobacco plants in seven states were evaluated re users, locations, and characteristics; program costs; effects on crop yield; pesticide use; production costs; and growers' profits. The environmental impact and the biological and economic feasibility of each program were studied, and the constraints on the expansion of pest management programs and the applicability of the findings of this study to other crops were assessed. Regional reports containing detailed information on the programs studied, are included as appendices.
