The testing of soil insecticides for efficacy is extremely complex and it would be impossible to put together guidelines for all soil insecticides; therefore, an attempt has been made to pull together some test methods for major pests on a few commodities. The commodities selected are corn, vegetables, sugarbeets, peanuts and tobacco. It would be impossible to cover all pests that might require soil insecticides under each of the commodities chosen.
