Muestreo por Golpeo para el Psílido Asiático de los Cítricos (PAC). Hoja de campo

Critical Issue: Agricultural and Food Systems

El monitoreo de las poblaciones del PAC es muy importante en el manejo integrado de la enfermedad llamada enverdecimiento de los cítricos. La manera más efectiva de estimar las poblaciones de este insecto en campo es el muestreo de adultos. El muestreo por golpe ha probado ser una herramienta que provee los datos e información necesarios para la toma de decisiones en el manejo de esta plaga. Otras plagas, insectos y ácaros benéficos podrían caer también a esta hoja y ser contados. Se recomiendan 10 muestreos en cada una de 10 localizaciones por bloque, 5 en la periferia y 5 en el interior. El PAC tiende a acumularse en la periferia del bloque, que por lo tanto puede requerir aplicaciones para su control más frecuentes.

TAP Sampling for Asian Citrus Psyllid (ACP) Field Sheet

Critical Issue: Agricultural and Food Systems

Monitoring ACP populations is an important tool in the integrated management of citrus greening. The most efficient way to estimate field populations of this insect is by monitoring adults. Tap sampling has proven to provide data needed to make informed decisions for managing this insect pest. Other pest and beneficial insects and mites may fall on the sheet and can also be counted. We recommend 10 tap samples in each of the 10 locations per block, 5 on the periphery and 5 in the interior. ACP tends to accumulate on the block periphery, which therefore may require more frequent sprays.
