Integrated Pest Management
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a vital part of growing a healthy and productive citrus grove. Scouting is the first step in IPM. By monitoring the groves, it provides the opportunity to identify pests or a potential pest. The next step is the proper identification of a pest or their damage. Once a pest is identified, management decisions can be made and may consist of preventative controls, use of biological controls, and chemical management.
