Nineteen cotton pest management programs, three peanut pest management programs and three tobacco pest management programs were evaluated in regard to the users, locations and characteristics of each program, program costs, program 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 constraints on the expansion of pest management programs and the applicability of the findings of this study to other crops were assessed. Most of the data were collected during the period July through September, 1974. The findings, conclusions and recommendations presented are based largely on the state of affairs as of the fall of 1974.
