Title: Effective Semiochemical Management of the Oriental Beetle for the Small Blueberry Grower
Agency: USDA
Contract: 2011-00385
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

In areas where Oriental Beetle (OrB) is a pest, growers interested in producing blueberries for the organic market don't have a viable control solution. Here we propose to develop a revolutionary tool for the control of OrB at the adult stage: our Specialized Pheromone & Lure Application Technology (SPLAT) is a long lasting, flowable amorphous formulation for the controlled release of (Z)-7-tetradecen-2-one, the major component of the sex pheromone of OrB.
