Conservación frigorífica de cítricos en atmósferas ozonizadas: efecto sobre las enfermedades de postcosecha
Evaluación de un detergente en base a benceno sulfonato de sodio para el control de la mosquita blanca Aleurothrixus floccosus y de la arañita roja Panonychus citri en naranjos y mandarinos
Citrus canker (caused by Xanthomonas citri subsp. citri, Xcc ) is an important bacterial disease of citrus that is spread naturally by rain and wind. Feeding damage to citrus leaves by the citrus leafminer (CLM), Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae), has been shown to promote infection levels of citrus canker in a number of citrus-growing regions around the world. We conducted 2 studies to document that CLM damage exacerbates canker in Florida citrus.
Effectiveness of Chlorine Dioxide as Influenced by Concentration, pH, and Exposure Time on Spore Germination of Botrytis cinerea, Penicillium expansum and Rhizopus stolonifer
Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is an alternative to hypochlorites (NaOCl, Ca(OCl)2) for fruit and vegetable sanitization to reduce postharvest decays caused, among other fungi, by Botrytis cinerea, Penicillium expansum and Rhizopus stolonifer.
Citrus canker and huanglongbing (HLB, or citrus greening) are two serious diseases that affect crops around the world, but have not yet infected California groves. This publication tells how to help keep the diseases out of California, and how to recognize them if or when they do arrive.
Comparative Effectiveness of some Mechanical Repellents for Management of Rose Ringed Parakeet (Psittacula krameri) in Citrus, Guava and Mango Orchards
This paper reports on the effectiveness of the mechanical repellents employed against the management of rose-ringed parakeet (Psittacula krameri) in citrus, guava and mango orchards. All the three fields were sub-divided into three sections, left, middle and right. More damage occurred on the corners than in the middle.
