2017-2018 Florida Citrus Production Guide 

Florida Citrus Production Guide 


The objective of the Florida Citrus Production Guide is to assist citrus growers in the identification of pest management options and the selection of appropriate control measures. This publication should serve as a reference once it has been determined that control measures might be warranted. It is not intended to replace pesticidal product labels which contain important usage information and should be immediately accessible for reference. Violations of directions for use printed on the label are against State and Federal laws. Care should be taken to select only those treatments best suited for control of the specific pest(s) identified as requiring suppression. Products listed in all tables have been shown to be efficacious, non-phytotoxic to citrus, and relatively safe on non-target arthropods and microorganisms when used as directed. However, it is important to realize that results may not be consistent under different environmental, application, and tank mix conditions.
