2007 Annual Report

UC Statewide IPM Program
HIGHLIGHTS

Strawberry Pest Management Guideline translated into Spanish

The 2005 Pest Management Guideline (PMG) for strawberries was translated into Spanish (2.2MB PDF), including the description of the pest and its damage or symptoms, and management methods other than pesticides. 

Spanish-speaking growers will find the new strawberry PMG useful as a quick reference for specific pests and diseases. They will be able to easily see the management options available to them along with how each management option may have unintended effects and how to mitigate those effects. Growers can also use the PMG, along with the IPM manual, as a pest identification training tool for their field managers and workers at specific times of the year when certain pests pose the greatest threat and are most likely to be detected.


Avocado
Cover of Integrated Pest Management for Avocados

IPM for Avocado manual to be released

California has more than 5,000 avocado growers who produce more than 90 percent of the avocados grown in the United States. By using the new Integrated Pest Management for Avocado manual by UC IPM, avocado growers can learn to identify and manage mites, thrips, and other pests without harming the environment.

The manual gives information on avocado growth and development, general crop management practices, and basic IPM principles. The book also covers the management of avocado diseases, noninfectious disorders, insects and mites, weeds, and vertebrate pests. These chapters provide descriptions and photographs of individual pests and the damage they cause. IPM recommendations include guidelines for monitoring pests, enhancing natural controls, and taking effective control actions.

Integrated Pest Management for Avocado is designed for use with the 2007 revision of the UC IPM Pest Management Guidelines: Avocado and the new seasonal decision-making guide, the Avocado Year-Round IPM Program.
