Pear Deficiencies & Pests
It is essential to control pests and diseases in pear orchards to meet the strict insect and disease regulations in place for canning pears. Canning is the primary market for California pears (Crop Profile, 1999).
For detailed information on pest identification and management in pear, go to UC Statewide IPM Program: How to Manage Pests: Pears. This website includes Year-round IPM Program for walnuts, and University of California's official guidelines for pest monitoring techniques, pesticides, and nonpesticide alternatives for managing pests.
