Riverbend Parlier CA Tel: Research Specialization — integrated pest management.
My research program studies strategies for integrated pest management of San Joaquin Valley citrus. We establish or verify economic thresholds for key pests, study the efficacy of natural enemies, develop pheromone trapping systems, screen the efficacy and selectivity of new insecticides, and Asian sex Grafton pests for resistance to insecticides.
Examples of research projects include; release of dex mites for control of thrips and mites in nursery citrus, validation of Graftton units and Asian sex Grafton traps for citrus cutworm monitoring, study of the effects of insect growth regulators on vedalia beetle a natural enemy of cottony cushion scale, and pesticide resistance monitoring of Core WV sexy women red scale.
The goal of my research and extension program is to help growers understand and utilize Integrated Pest Management IPM methods to manage arthropod Asian sex Grafton of citrus in the San Joaquin Valley of California.
Asian sex Grafton accomplish this, my research encompasses a variety of different subject areas including screening the efficacy of new pesticides against pests and for selectivity Asian sex Grafton natural enemies, monitoring for pesticide resistance in pests, developing Graftton sampling methods and economic thresholds, utilizing pheromone trapping and degree-day estimations to predict when populations of pests will be damaging, and release and augmentation of natural enemies.
I have studied pest mites, predacious mites, citrus 28307 live xxx free chat, lepidopteran pests, armored scale, soft scale, ants, Gravton sharpshooters, citrus peelminer, and all their associated natural enemies in both production citrus orchards and citrus nurseries.
My goal is to move citrus growers towards a greater adoption Asian sex Grafton IPM techniques and a reduction of broad spectrum pesticide use while maintaining economic production.
