​This presentation defines plant compensation and explains why it is important. The presentation will focus on examples of pest management in which compensation from injury was seen. The objectives of this presentation are to demonstrate that every pest-related injury warrants an insecticide application and that it is important for growers to be mindful of the management decisions they make.
