1c) whereby the plant reacts to the presence of damage in such a manner that yield is actually increased above that which would have been achieved in the absence of the pest. This response is mostly 20 R. Isaacs et al. limited to early infestations and low levels of damage, such that damage greater than that causing overcompensation will eventually reduce yield. In addition to the level of injury, plant phenology and environmental conditions influence the ability of a plant to compensate (Bardner and Fletcher 1974).

In such cases, an empirically determined AT serves as a functional threshold that when used to drive IPM decision-making, can result in lower pesticide use and more information-based management of pest populations. The use of ATs by growers and consultants is likely quite common in viticulture, but by definition these locally adopted thresholds may not be published in the scientific literature. 3 Challenges to Developing Pest Thresholds in Grapes Before discussing grape arthropod pests for which thresholds have been developed, we consider it instructive to review the factors that can make thresholds challenging to develop for this crop.
