Navel Orangeworm (NOW) Control in Nut Crops 
Navel orangeworm (NOW), Amyelois transitella, first appeared in California in the early half of the 20th century and rapidly increased. Currently, navel orangeworm is the primary pest of almonds, pistachios and walnuts, and also present in citrus, stone fruit, pome, date, and fig crops, impacting the dynamics of the pest in California as hosts for the pest. This course discusses the threat of navel orangeworm in nut crops, as well as best management practices for treatment.
