Citrus disease trends we should heed: Phytophthora, HLB and Leprosis virus.

Dr. Ozgur Batuman, UF-IFAS. In this talk, I will remind our growers to continue paying attention to other pathogens that can attack already HLB-weakened trees. Phytophthora or leprosis each can substantially reduce productivity of a citrus tree but when they are co-infecting, it can be fatal. Also, some control measures may not be effective anymore due to HLB-induced complications.
