Entomologist Robert Mangan (left) and plant physiologist Nasir Malik of ARS’s Kika de la Garza Subtropical Agricultural Research Center, Weslaco, Texas, observe Asian citrus psyllid infestation on new growth, called “flush,” on a Kaffir lime (also known as Kieffer lime). The tree was completely defoliated and then given 2 weeks of specific environmental conditions to induce new flush on all its branches.
