Almond pest management team to receive major award at ESA meeting
Date:10/28/2008

e research and demonstration project for six to eight years (1998-2005) in the state's primary almond-growing areas: Stanislaus County (six years) and Kern and Butte counties (eight years). California leads the nation in almond production, with some 700,000 acres.

PMA's findings appear in the publication, Seasonal Guide to Environmentally Responsible Pest Management Practices for Almonds. Written by Pickel, Bentley, Viveros, Duncan and Connell, the publication offers a combination of biological, cultural and reduced risk alternatives. The guide outlines monitoring techniques and economic thresholds for using reduced-risk pesticides and specifies when to use broad-spectrum insecticides.

The team "developed an excellent research and extension team to develop and deliver IPM to the almond industry of California," wrote award nominator Peter Goodell, interim director of the UC IPM Program and a longtime UC IPM advisor. For example, PMA research showed that almond growers need not spray for peach twig borer, navel orangeworm and San Jose scale every year.

The Pesticide Use Report, compiled by the Department of Pesticide Regulation, showed a 77 percent reduction in pesticide use during the Almond Pest Management Alliance's active years, Goodell noted. "Much of this pesticide reduction was in dormant applications of diazinon and chloropyrophos (Lorsban), organophosphate insecticides that have been implicated in pollution of waterways from runoff of treated orchards."

The team delivered the program through extension channels, including classroom sessions, field demonstrations, hands-on training, farmer and pest control advisor (PCA) schools, and printed and Web-based products.
