An integrated pest management program (IPM) for anthuriums successfully reduced pesticide applications without reducing production and marketability. During 1986 and 1987, insecticide, acaricide, and fungicide applications at three farms studied were reduced by 45, 79, and 96%, respectively, by economically justifying spray applications. No significant increase in thrips, mite, or anthracnose injuries occurred, nor did total cost for treatment and pest damage increase. Our study indicated that the IPM concept implemented on a floricultural crop can reduce pesticide applications and increase profitability.
