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

IN1122/ENY-890 by Jawwad A. Qureshi and Phil StanslyAugust 7th, 2022El 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.Critical Issue: Agricultural and Food Systems
