Arthropod Management Tests – an Open Access Source for Insecticide Efficacy Data

— Written By

A recent change to the publishing model for journals produced by the Entomological Society of America has the potential to be a huge benefit to those of us in extension. Arthropod Management Tests (or AMTs), a peer reviewed journal that publishes short reports of pesticide efficacy trials, is now open access. This means that a wealth of efficacy data is now available in an easily searchable form.

AMTs are my first stop for insecticide efficacy information in cases where I have not done direct trials with a material. For example, you can find information about the efficacy of different insecticides and application timings against raspberry crown borer. AMTs are also where I publish all of the efficacy trials conducted by my laboratory annually, which you can find here for the last seven years.
