Description

Abstract Text:
Historically,blueberry maggot, cranberry weevil, oriental beetle, Sparganothis fruitworm, spotted fireworm, blunt-nosed leafhoppers, blueberry aphids, and plum curculiohave been amongthe most important insect pests of highbush blueberries and cranberries in New Jersey. Recently, the Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD), anew invasive species native to Asia, pose a major threat to the blueberryindustry in New Jersey. The implementation of Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) is expected to negatively impact the availability of insecticides that are currently used to manage these insect pests. This project seeks to develop new low-risk management strategies against these major pests that are not impacted by the implementation of FQPA. These strategies include: studies on the spatial movement and distribution of SWD, development of attract-and-kill strategies for management of weevils, implementation of mating disruption for oriental beetle, test of host-plant volatiles for pest monitoring and control, identification of pheromones for insect monitoring and management, evaluation of new reduced-risk management tools for plum curculio control, induced resistance for management of blueberry and cranberry pests, toxicity of new reduced-risk products, compatibility of reduced-risk insecticides with natural enemies, and attraction ofpredatorsusing volatiles for conservation biological control.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
