Abstract:

This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop a slow-release sprayable formulation of a guava-based chemical compound with repellant activity to manage the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), an insect that is associated with the spread of the pathogenic agent that causes the deadly Citrus greening disease. ISCA Technologies will formulate this guava-based chemical with a proprietary flowable, matrix (SPLAT) that has proven track record for the controlled, long lasting, dissemination of odors that effectively help users manipulate the behavior of insect pests in field situations. The SPLAT guava-based repellent/deterrent is likely to help small and large citrus growers to manage ACP populations in their groves.
