Description / Abstract:

1. Scope

1.1 This test method covers the effectiveness of predacides. Any test method covering the use of a predacide should include recognition that the ultimate test for efficacy is whether it functions as an effective management tool under range conditions. While laboratory or pen data are both necessary and useful, vital determination must be under actual use conditions. There is no standard laboratory animal. This test method attempts to balance the necessary and the feasible in making such an evaluation.

1.2 Research in this field in the United States is primarily associated with government funding, because of low-economic incentives and intensive regulation. Such factors periodically change without reference to science.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
