Growing Citrus for the Fresh Market in Citrus Under Protective Screen (CUPS)Preliminary results from experiments to improve color break and internal fruit quality in CUPS
by Dr. Arnold Schumann, Professor at UF-IFAS, Citrus Research and Education Center, Lake Alfred.
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.
