Description: The influx of foreign organisms and the growing resistance of resident organisms to chemical controls are coming at a time of increasing world population and need for greater efficiency in food production in the face of changing world climate. Rapid transportation and increased world trade have introduced foreign pests into American agricultural areas. Pesticides are increasingly ineffective at controlling insects and may have harmful side effects. As insects adapt to existing practices of crop rotation on a field-to-field basis and extend their ranges in a changing climate, it may become necessary to implement mitigation agricultural strategies such as crop rotations over regions or perhaps across international boundaries.
