File Fulcher 2012 W142 Scouting and Monitoring Pests of Deciduous Trees during Nursery Production
This is targeted directly at the nursery industry and the system of IPM described here has been proven effective in nurseries to save money. Dr. Amy F. Fulcher at U. of Tennessee has honed this system for more than a decade into an efficient, productive and effective way of scouting pests, monitoring outbreaks, and uses the least toxic alternative to reduces both spray applications and the amount of chemical applied, and produces the greatest management of target pests.

File Lebude and Fulcher (eds.). 2015. Pest Management Strategic Plan for Container and Field-Produced Nursery Crops in FL, GA, KY, NC, SC, TN, and V A.
A Pest Managment Strategic Plan (PMSP) collaborative effort from the Southern Nursery Integrated Pest Management (SNIPM) working group that contains key pest profiles for insects, plant diseases, and weeds. There are scouting and monitoring techniques listed, cultural practices discussed, and beneficial insects included for preventing pests in field and container production of ornamentals.
