Résumé
Pests and pest control strategies on selected non-tradltlonal crops (guar, guayule, jojoba, plantago and tepary beans) were examined to determine what pests had been Identified on these crops and how they were being controlled. Additionally, selected traditional crops (carrots, cotton, grape, lettuce and pecan) were reviewed to learn their early pest control activities and how these might be applied In developing control programs on the current non-tradltlonal crops. The study was carried out with the use of a literature search plus a DELPHI survey and personal Interviews. Although the results Indicated a general lack of awareness of the pests on these non-tradltlonal crops, weeds were recognized as the predominant problem. Other conclusions Indicated that there was a discrepancy between the literature and the survey responses regarding pest controls and the research apparently addressing the topic. Fl nal ly, the lack of any eas I ly usabl e source on the hi story of pests and their controls on the more traditional crops makes the development of guidelines and the correlation of pest problems and their controls to the non-tradltlonal crops difficult at best.
