Announcement: Citrus greening funding through CRDF
Citrus Huanglongbing (HLB, Citrus greening) is a major disease in many citrus growing regions of the world, especially in Florida. The Florida Citrus Research and Development Foundation (CRDF) is entertaining pre-proposals aimed at continuously significantly suppressing the disease vector (Asian citrus psyllid, ACP, Diaphorina citri) or rendering it harmless; eliminating or reducing the damage caused by the bacterial causal agent (Liberibacter asisaticus) to the degree that HLB is rendered extinct or functionally irrelevant; or modifying the citrus host in a way that the tree is sufficiently unaffected by the disease to produce at least near-pre-HLB fruit yields and fruit quality. Go to www.citrusrdf.org to find details and forms to submit a pre-proposal for consideration by CRDF.
Pre-proposals are due January 16th 2023.
