The Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) recently adopted regulations that will limit the use of neonicotinoid pesticide products on certain agriculture crops, including citrus. The new regulations will go into effect January 1, 2024, and apply to soil and foliar applications of products containing clothianidin, dinotefuran, imidacloprid, and thiamethoxam.
We encourage growers and applicators to review DPR’s regulation fact sheet for citrus to ensure you are prepared for the implementation of these changes. You can also visit DPR’s Neonicotinoid Regulations to Protect Pollinators webpage for more information.
