CATEGORY: Business

The January issue of Citrus Industry magazine offers management advice for controlling the most problematic pests found in Florida groves. While Asian citrus psyllids (ACP) remain the biggest challenge, there are other pests of concern that shouldn't be overlooked. Grower Chip Henry discusses his successful use of a natural insect control option that both organic and traditional growers may want to consider. University of Florida (UF) entomologist Lauren Diepenbrock tells growers what they need to know to keep scales, whiteflies, aphids and mealybugs under control. UF entomologists Lukasz Stelinski and Jawwad Qureshi offer several tips for effectively minimizing ACP populations. For more information on other timely citrus topics, be sure to tune in to the All In For Citrus podcast. The December podcast addresses grower contract issues, Brazilian citrus production, soil health research and the Winter Weather Watch program.
