Summary: Silverleaf whitefly is an important economic pest that requires management in vegetable and agronomic cropping systems to preserve yield and quality. The best opportunity for impacting the severity of infestations is to minimize populations of silverleaf whitefly moving from one cropping system to another. This can be accomplished with effective in-crop management and timely crop termination after harvest to minimize population development. Populations of silverleaf whitefly increase during the year, and management within each cropping system significantly impacts subsequent cropping systems. It is important that management of silverleaf is a priority in all agronomic and horticultural crops. Cross-commodity cooperation and management with the objective of minimizing overall populations of SLWF will benefit all Georgia growers.
