The Appropriate Response Process (Arp) And its Role in Plant Health Care    (View PDF)

John Ball, John E. Lloyd, and Daniel F. Marion

Abstract: Plant health care (PHC) is presented as a strategy for the professional care of ornamental landscapes. Plant health care incorporates plant care practices, including integrated pest management (IPM), into a comprehensive management system. This system requires that the practitioner use information about the plant, the stressor, and the client when making management decisions. The appropriate response process (ARP) is introduced as a conceptual model of the PHC decision-making process.
