Alabama Extension Offering Peach Insect, Disease Management Chart

Jim Rogers Disease, Peaches, Pests

Alabama Extension is offering a Peach Insect and Disease Management Chart for peach producers. The tool is a resource growers can carry with them and help manage insects during certain tree cycles.

It includes the most common insect pests, including scale, European red mite, lesser peachtree borer and thrips. It also includes what management options growers have for prevention of these pests.

The chart also features the active ingredients that works best for each insect, when to use it and how to apply it.

Interested growers can contact Ayanava Majumdar, Extension Professor in Entomology and Plant Pathology at Auburn University, at azm0024@aces.edu to order a slide chart. A copy is also available from any commercial horticulture regional Extension agent.
