The article reports on the views of University of California Cooperative Extension floriculture farm advisor Jim Bethke concerning pest control for indoor citrus nursery production which he presented at a citrus nursery workshop in California. Bethke reportedly commented that growing plant indoors is different than outdoor production which involves direct sampling techniques. It notes that Bethke also stressed the importance of pesticide rotation to reduce pest resistance.
