Monitoring Codling Moth Damage

Monday May 16, 2016 1:30pm
Monitoring codling moth at the end of each generation gives a good indication of the success of your management program and where in the orchard damage occurs.

Predicting Third Generation of CM

Monday May 16, 2016 1:30pm
Predicting the extent of the third generation of codling moth (CM) is based on a statistical relationship of the degree-days historically found on 1 August and at the end of the season on 1 November. We update this prediction roughly every 10 days after 15 August because the DD prediction for 1 November gets more accurate as we get closer.
