Agency: USDA
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $350,000.00
 

Abstract:

The goal of the project is to provide control of an important insect pest of citrus trees(citrus leafminer that transmits a lethal citrus canker bacterium) for small and medium US citrus growers. This project is utilizing the sex pheromone of the citrus leaf miner and their Specialized Pheromone and Lure Application Technology (SPLAT) approach to develop a biocontrol program to control the citrus leaf miner. The use of the mating disruption technique is an alternative method of pest control that is environmentally safe, which becomes increasingly important with encroaching urban areas.
