Successful Pest Control in Protective Structures
An All Day Workshop Presented by the CCNB
Doubletree Hotel, Ontario, CA
Because of the arrival of the Asian Citrus Psyllid and the threat of bacterial Huanglongbing disease, the citrus nursery industry is rapidly moving citrus seedlings and trees into protective structures. This is a new experience for many nurserymen, and there is some uncertainty about the mechanics of the structures, the screen mesh needed, the regulations that must be met and the pesticide treatments to be used in these situations. This workshop featuring industry and university experts will provide up-to-date information on these topics.

The International Society of Citrus Nurserymen (ISCN) and the Organizing Committee of the 9th International Congress of Citrus Nurserymen (ISCN 2011) would like to invite citrus nurserymen, scientists and producers from all over the world to attend the ISCN 2011 that will be held in Tucumán, Argentina, from June 13-16th, 2011. The congress will have plenary and ordinary sessions, workshops and poster display. Those attending pre, post and mid Congress tours will have the opportunity to see both the nursery industry in Uruguay and Chile, and the nursery practices, varieties and rootstock trials and research institutions at Tucumán, Argentina.
Congress is being organized by the Asociación Tucumana de Citrus (ATC), Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA) and the Estación Experimental Agroindustrial Obispo Columbres (EEAOC), with the collaboration of official institutions as Instituto Nacional de Semillas (INASE), Servicio Nacional de Sanidad y Calidad Agroalimentaria (SENASA), Asociación Fitosanitaria del Noroeste Argentino (AFINOA), Federación de Citricultores (FEDERCITRUS) and the active involvement of the citrus industry and nurserymen.
Argentina is the eighth largest producer of citrus fruits and the main producer of lemons worldwide. It has been exporting fresh citrus fruits, fruit juices and essential oils since 1970. The production of citrus fruit in Argentina totals 2.9 million t. Argentinean citrus fruits are grown on a total surface of 134,000 ha.
The environmental conditions in the growing areas of Argentina are ideal for oranges, mandarins, grapefruits and lemons. The produce is grown in two main areas which benefit from their privileged location between the Tropic of Cancer and at Latitude of 35º South: orange, grapefruit and lemons are found in the northwest, mainly the latter in the province of Tucumán, whereas orange and mandarin plantations are predominant in the northeast. These fruits are harvested and exported virtually all year round with a wide range of varieties, thus allowing meeting the demands of different markets.
The meeting location for the 9th ISCN Congress is the city of Tucumán which is known as the ´Republic´s Garden´ because it has some of the most idyllic destinations in the country, with the advantage of good weather throughout the year. The citrus community of Argentina is waiting for having all of you in June 2011!
