Research Project: Exploitation of Visual Stimule for Better Monitoring and Management of Asian Citrus Psyllid in Young Citrus Plantings Project Number: 6615-22000-025-17
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: May 01, 2013
End Date: Apr 25, 2014

Objective:
To develop a push-pull system for Asian citrus psyllid management for protection of young citrus plants.

Approach:
Investigate visual cues that cause attraction and repellency of psyllids in the laboratory, devise push and pull methods for psylids and evaluate the methods in the field with young citrus plants.
