Asian citrus psyllid: biology, ecology and management of the huanglongbing vector.

Book cover for Asian citrus psyllid: biology, ecology and management of the huanglongbing vector.

Description

Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), Diaphorina citri, is an insect pest which transmits a bacterium, Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (CLas), primarily through feeding in newly emergent foliage of citrus trees. This pathogen causes a disease known as Huanglongbing (HLB), or citrus greening, which has become the most debilitating and intractable disease in citrus crops. This book gathers together everythi...

Chapter 13 (Page no: 210)

Asian citrus psyllid management in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

This chapter focuses on the main management strategies used by citrus growers for Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) control in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Control strategies include monitoring and phytosanitary alert system, chemical control, biological control, and external actions. Farm size and the presence or absence of neighbor areas without ACP control are important factors determining the success or failure of Huanglongbing (HLB) management. While these factors are not under direct control of the grower, implementation of a rigorous ACP control program inside and outside the farm can stabilize or reduce the annual (HLB) infection rate (percentage of new HLB-symptomatic trees found per year).
