A quick post today to share a link to the recently revised "UC IPM Pest Management Guidelines for Avocado" (UC ANR Publication #3436). You can download the whole document as a pdf here, or use it online at the above link
Although there are also well-written sections on general avocado pest management, as well as specific information on insects, mites, and diseases of avocado, since this is the Weed Science blog, I'd better post a link directly to the Integrated Weed Management section authored by:
- B. A. Faber, UC Cooperative Extension, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties
- C. A. Wilen, UC Statewide IPM Program, San Diego County
- B. D. Hanson, Plant Sciences, UC DavisR. Elkins, UC Cooperative Extension, Lake County
- with contributions from W.T. Lanini, A. Shrestha, and P.A. Phillips
I think these PMGs are among the most useful sources of pest management information published by the UC Statewide Integrated Pest Management Program. These agricultural and home garden pest management guides are updated every year or so with extensive revisions every few years. The authors usually include University of California faculty, specialists, and farm advisors and the guides are produced and edited by UC Statewide IPM Program, University of California, Davis.
