Evaluate new chemistries, alternative insecticide timing, improved application and enhanced sanitation to reduce navel orangeworm damage in pistachios.
Initially, research will be conducted within the framework of the areawide program to control navel orangeworm in almonds, pistachios and walnuts. Research will focus on evaluating the efficacy of new chemistries in combination with existing insecticides. Further efforts will evaluate postharvest insecticide applications as well as sprays in late April/early May.
