Agriculture: Citrus Pest Management Guidelines

Introduction

These practices are recommended for a monitoring-based IPM program that reduces water and air quality problems related to pesticide use. Track your progress through the year using this form.

Water quality becomes impaired when pesticides move off-site and into water. Air quality becomes impaired when volatile organic compounds move into the atmosphere. Each time a pesticide application is considered, review the Pesticide Application Checklist at the bottom of this form for information on how to minimize air and water quality problems.

This year-round IPM program covers major pests of citrus grown in California's Central Valley. Details on carrying out each practice, information on additional pests, and additional copies of this form are available from the UC IPM Pest Management Guidelines: Citrus. Color photo identification sheets and examples of monitoring forms can be found on the forms and photo ID pages.
