Psyllid Aerial Spray Program

The Indian River Psyllid Aerial Spray Program for the 2009/10 season has concluded with two sprays, one in October and a second spray in March. Thus far the data on the program is inconclusive due to a partial application in October. The program has expanded dramatically in the second application from 22,000 acres to 44,000 acres. Also there has been a label change for Mustang, which will allow better coverage at a lower rate for grower members. Data is still being collected from the March application and results will be presented at a League Production Committee meeting on June 2, at 10 a.m. Plans are already being drawn up for the 2010/11 season with a first application in September of Malathion 5 and a follow up application in January 2011 of Mustang. The program is also considering going to tap samples only versus sticky traps to save money for growers and the program. Growers are being asked to also include acreage sprayed by ground, when they submit their data. For more details on the aerial spray program, please contact Linda Minton at 772/971-9980.
