This section illustrates the progress of the agricultural sector of the U.S., specifically regarding financial assistance, human resources, equipments, and technological advancement. In the crop-manufacture and protection systems of the U.S., a national agreement about the incorporation of health care among plants was established. Such consensus is derived from the heightened intricacies in crop administration and ineffective implementation of integrated pest management (IPM). With these scenarios, scholars and agriculturalists became involved in incorporating an interdisciplinary study on the appropriate design and execution of pest avoidance. Utilizing a cross-disciplinary method has significantly contributed to the history of agriculture, education, and related literatures. Consequently, findings have prompted the evaluation of current agricultural policies and standards, and have offered recommendations to the betterment of crop yield and profit maximization.
