Endorsed by the Citrus Pest & Disease Prevention Committee
The Citrus Pest & Disease Prevention Committee has endorsed the following “Best Practices for Growers in Response to HLB in California.” More details on these best practices can be found at https://citrusinsider.org/psyllid-and-disease-control/voluntary-best-practices-for-growers-response-to-huanglongbing/.
The recommendations represent the most effective tools known to the citrus industry at this time and are meant to supplement the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s required regulatory response. They were developed by a task force consisting of growers from across the state and scientists.
Citrus growers are urged contact their local grower liaison with questions.
The best practices will be explained in-depth during Citrus Research Board’s 2019 Citrus Growers Educational Seminars from June 25–27 in Palm Desert, Santa Paula and Exeter. Visit CitrusResearch.org to learn more and register for the seminars.
All growers of industrial hemp for commercial purposes must register with the County Agricultural Commissioner prior to cultivation. Registration is NOW available.
