Brazil Ag Ministry extends codling moth traps

The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture is committing further funds for the control of codling moths ( Cydia pomonella) using traps. It has added some R$760,000 ($460,000) to fund further monitoring and laying of traps in two southern states that dominate the country’s pome fruit production. The funds are on top of some R$3 million ($1.8 million at the current rate) that the Ministry has invested over five years ( Agrow No 602, p 18). No codling moths have been detected in one Rio Grande do Sul county since 2009, and the pest is to be declared eradicated from the area. Three insects have been detected in each of two other counties this year, and it is the responsibility of the Ministry to cut down trees and remove any suspect fruit from those orchards.
