Citrus Pest and their Eco-friendly Management Strategies - A Lesson to Learn
Citrus is one of the most important juicy fruits and cultivated in more than 50 countries in the world. In our country nearly 300 pests including insects, diseases, nematodes and mites have been reported and reducing the production and productivity of the crop. In India the key pests include Trunk borer, Leaf miner, citrus psylla, red scale, mealy bugs’ aphids, canker, citrus nematodes etc. and dependence on chemical pesticides had increased the pesticide residue and pest resistance which affect the health of all the living beings. These key pests had reduced or contribute the citrus production in our country.Hence there is strong need to develop Integrated Pest management which include regular monitoring of these pest, modifying the nutrient and crop health management. There is also a need to make an effort to rejuvenate our orchards. There is strong need to develop many more information which is economical, eco-friendly plant protection strategies. Bio-pesticides including botanicals, can offer a safe and effective alternative to conventional insecticides for controlling the pest within an integrated pest management programme.
