Integrated Pest Management for Citrus is the best-illustrated guide available for the prevention, identification, monitoring, and management of citrus pests. This book also provides substantial information on citrus production practices that prevent pest problems. More highly illustrated and extensively revised during its third edition, this book presents pest information and management recommendations from University of California Cooperative Extension specialists, farm advisors, and researchers.

Revised

Third edition revisions include:

  • more than 300 additional photographs
  • more illustrated keys to help you distinguish among similar-looking pest species
  • new pests and foreign species to look-out for
  • updated monitoring and pest management recommendations
  • effective use of natural enemies, cultural controls, and other pest-prevention methods

High-quality Photographs

More than 500 high-quality color photographs and dozens of drawings and charts will help you identify and manage over 150 different citrus pests and to recognize the important natural enemies of pest insects and mites. The book content includes pest insects, mites, diseases, weeds, nematodes, and vertebrates. Abiotic disorders and crop production and harvest-related problems are also covered.
