Managing Pests & Disease
Agricultural pests are small but can pack a big financial punch, damaging crops and reducing yields for Florida growers.
The Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) is now all too common in Florida groves, forcing many growers to take the costly step of ripping out infected trees and planting new ones.
But Florida growers have options for safeguarding the longevity and marketability of their crops. Vigilant monitoring and cultural practices, paired with crop protection products, can provide season-long control of ACP and other pests and preserve yields for Florida citrus growers.
An integrated approach gives citrus growers the best chance to manage greening. This University of Florida guide covers ACP control, tree removal and other strategies.
