Abstract

Growers reported that successful fruit production required extensive pesticide use in 1977 and 1978. Deciduous fruit crops required more pesticides than did citrus fruits; and insects and diseases were the most severe fruit pests. The extent of pesticide use varied because the severity and intensity of the pests targeted for study differed according to the pest, species, region, survey year, and type and density of fruit production. This report, which relied upon growers' ability to identify the pests damaging the selected fruit crops, presents regional estimates of the most frequently reported pests requiring pesticide control on both citrus and deciduous fruit crops.
