Crop Safety: How You Can Prevent the Spread of the Asian Citrus Psyllid

May 1, 2014

A new video aims to educate California citrus industry workers on what they should be doing in the field to limit the spread of the Asian citrus psyllid.

The three-minute video produced by the Citrus Pest & Disease Prevention Program demonstrates the best management practices needed to limit the spread of the psyllid and protect crops.

As the video mentions, the Asian citrus psyllid feeds on  leaves and stems of citrus trees, and properly managing this plant material will help avoid accidentally transferring the psyllid from one work site to the next.
