      Crop Profile for Potatoes in OregonPrepared: July 1, Revised: September 2, General Production Information Oregon is the fifth leading U.S. producer of fall potatoes. The causes of pest outbreaks and losses of crops to pests are due to a wide array of changes in the agricultural ecosystem that encourages pest outbreaks. Some of the changes include the planting of introduced crops into new ecosystems. For example, more than 99% of the crops grown in the United States are introduced crop plants. AFile Size: KB.

      This means based that, on the amount of money spent per year on pesticides, $10 billion, there is an additional $40 billion savings in crop that would be lost due to damage by insects and weeds. In general, farmers benefit from having an increase in crop yield and from being able to grow a variety of crops throughout the year. Weeds are estimated to cost Australian agriculture more than $ billion per year. Understanding weeds and the various methods to control them ultimately reduces costs and improves productivity. The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development conducts research into the management of weeds and has developed integrated weed management (IWM) packages, that incorporate a number .

      Potential losses in Kansas. According to a Weed Science Society of America study, Kansas alone would potentially have lost percent of soybeans at an average financial cost of $,, per year over the seven years of the study () if weeds had been left to grow unchecked.. The study indicated a potential yield loss of percent of dryland corn per year at a value of just. , losses due to weeds were estimated at 34% in Texas, 12% in California and Missouri, and 17% in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi; total losses for the United States were mmt valued atAuthor: David Yves Lanclos.

Weeds are notorious yield reducers that are, in many situations, economically more harmful than insects, fungi or other crop pests. Assessment of crop yield and economic losses due to weeds in agriculture is an important aspect of study which helps in devising appropriate management strategies against by: determine potential loss in value due to weeds.

aggregate production loss due to weeds and receive the largest total quantity of herbicide (4,23). Bioeconomic decision-support models provide a tool to improve farmer profits while reducing herbicide use in the long run (15, 18, 33). True bioeconomic models incorporate a mechanism for estimating crop yield losses due to weeds.

If not controlled in the beginning, weeds can cause significant reduction in crop yield and also deteriorate the quality. Gharde et al 24 have reported that in India alone, the losses due to weeds.

Pesticides are an integral component of US agriculture and account for about % of total farm production costs (Aspelin and Grube, ). Pesticide use in the United States averaged over billion pounds of active ingredient inand was associated with expenditures exceeding $ billion; this use involved o products and more than active ingredients.

CHAPTER 2 Crop losses and their causes In the United States incrop losses caused by diseases and insects in specific vegetables were, respectively: cole crops 9 and 13%, lettuce 12 and 7%, potato 20 and 6%, tomato 21 and 7%, sweet corn 8 and Crop losses caused by competition from weeds can be assessed quite readily, but weeds File Size: 93KB.

Crop losses due to post-harvest factors. Crop losses also occur after harvest due to many causes such as pests and diseases. Some of the major causes of post-harvest losses to cassava and sweetpotato are larger grain borer for processed dry products such chips.

Introduction. In the history of the United States, approximat alien invasive (non-native) species are estimated to have been introduced (Pimentel, ).Introduced crop species, such as corn, wheat, rice, and other food crops now provide more than 98% of the US food system at a value of approximately $ billion per year ().Other exotic species have been used for landscape Cited by: 2.

Crop losses to pests - Volume Issue 1 - E.-C. OERKE. Productivity of crops grown for human consumption is at risk due to the incidence of pests, Cited by:   Crop losses from weed interference have a significant effect on net returns for producers.

Herein, potential corn yield loss because of weed interference across the primary corn-producing regions of the United States and Canada are documented.

Yield-loss estimates were determined from comparative, quantitative observations of corn yields between nontreated and treatments providing Cited by: They can also host crop pests such as aphids, fungal rots and viruses.

[2] [3] Cost increases and yield losses occur as a result. Striga, one of the main cereal crop weeds in Sub-Saharan Africa, commonly causes yield losses of 40–% and accounts for around $7 billion in losses annually. The top ten states with the largest overall crop insurance payouts due to drought, heat and hot wind were: Illinois: 98% of all crop losses were caused by drought, heat and hot wind, costing.

While maximum yield losses can exceed 90% of the potential yield in many crops, the actual.Rutabaga is a cool-weather crop and is grown primarily in the northern parts of the United States and Europe, in Great Britain and in Canada.
