Test methods, protocols and procedures for evaluating the effectiveness of invertebrate control agents on turf, ornamentals, forest lands and shade trees are discussed in this report. Specific techniques and methods are documented in selected references, exhibits and other appropriate sources of information. All available references using similar procedures and methods are not cited in order to avoid duplication and repetition. Those cited contain generally accepted protocols and methods, but it is realized that they are not all inclusive and other references may include different methods or variations of those presented. Due to the large numbers of host plants and pests and the limited number of researchers working in subject areas, considerable flexibility in requirements for test methods is necessary. The scope of organizing test methods for turf, greenhouse and outdoor ornamentals, shade trees and forest lands is briefly addressed.
