This week the Entomology Team is in the Fruit Quality Laboratory. Here they are seen taking fruit measurements from 180 samples of navel oranges from trees that were sprayed at 14 day intervals 0, 6 or 12 times with low rates of narrow range oil. Frequent applications of oil can help reduce Asian citrus psyllid densities in organic situations. This trial is examining the effect of these frequent oil applications on fruit quality.
