Abstract
This study of current and prospective pest control strategies focuses on the problems involving commercial corn and soybean production for feed purposes. It examines current pest control practices, direct and indirect benefits and costs, and future implications of the current trends in pest control. A broad look at future prospects assumes considerable importance of corn and soybeans in view of world food shortages and shifts in U.S. farm policy.
