Abstract
The majority of US citrus growers farm less than 100 acres, producing specialty table fruit and citrus juice, with most yielding less than $200,000 in yearly farm income. Furthermore, much of the citrus acreage is being encroached upon by urban growth, making it impossible for many growers to use the limited pest management tools available. Successful completion of this project will provide citrus growers with a valuable tool for managing ACP, and reduce the risk of spreading HLB. If labeled organic, SPLAT ACP Repel has the potential for use throughout the industry, including in those orchards that cannot or do not use conventional pesticides.
