The University of California, Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources is pleased to announce the publication of Integrated Pest Management for Citrus—3rd Edition.
This highly anticipated 270-page 3rd edition was updated as a response to Asian citrus psyllid and citrus greening disease — a disease that according to the USDA threatens to destroy over 1 million commercial citrus acres with a production value of approximately $3 billion. To date, 7 Southern California counties have been quarantined for Asian citrus psyllid, the insect responsible for the spread of citrus greening disease, including Imperial County, San Diego County, Riverside County, Los Angeles County, Ventura County, and parts of San Bernardino and Santa Barbara counties.
Integrated Pest Management for Citrus—3rd Edition has more than 550 colored photographs and 80 figures and tables to help citrus growers, consultants, and pest management professionals identify and manage more than 150 common pests, diseases, and disorders, including Asian citrus psyllid. The newly revised 3rd edition contains even more pictures, more resources, and more pests, along with a more detailed table of contents and index for easy searching. Important information about physical disorders, common production problems, and frequent harvest-related problems is also covered. This manual is an indispensable tool for citrus growers, consultants, and pest management professionals alike.
Integrated Pest Management for Citrus—3rd Edition, (ANR publication 3303, ISBN 978-1-60107-696-0), is $40.00 and can be ordered by calling 1-800-994-8849 or by logging onto http://anrcatalog.ucdavis.edu. Shipping and applicable tax are added to the cost of each order.
