The data included: literature reviews of policies affecting IPM, modeling techniques with IPM, and economic evaluations of IPM, background data on the economic conditions within Jamaica, and preliminary farming techniques used by Jamaican farmers. Data was also gathered in a variety of areas including: farming methods, domestic policies within Jamaica, literature review on modeling IPM policies, evaluations of economic policies within Jamaica and economic evaluations of IPM techniques. Collaborators in Jamaica provided data on the IPM CRSP systems and the potential benefits from the systems.
