Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Jan 26, 2009
End Date: Dec 31, 2013
Identify repellents or attractants that could be used to manage the Asian citrus psyllid.
Cooperator will provide ARS with various guava essence fractions, which ARS will screen for repellency or attractancy to the psyllid using olfactometer and EAD/EAG studies. Cooperator will further fractionate active fractions, and ARS will screen these as well. The chemical nature of any repellents or attractants found will be determined, if possible.
