ntegrated pest management has proved cost-effective in coping with crop pests. This article identifies characteristics of pests, controls and economic incentives that may make the development of an integrated joint pest management (IJPM) strategy – designed for simultaneous control of multiple pests – worthwhile. We demonstrate via a case study that an IJPM strategy may add considerable value for on-farm corn storage. Critical factors for an IJPM strategy are that the pests are affected by the same environmental variables, but with different thresholds and response functions; controls for one pest impact other pests; and the pests have similar economic importance
