Webinar: Citrus Greening & the Quest for an Organic Solution

Date:
05/09/19, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Citrus Greening is a devastating disease affecting citrus around the world. It has swept through the United States, wiping out over 60% of the citrus harvest in Florida alone. To date there has been no cure found for this disease, and most of the research on control measures have focused on conventional protocols. However, a new report by the Organic Center in collaboration with Ellen Cochrane, examines tools that are available for organic growers and details a rigorous, multi-faceted approach to protecting citrus trees in organic systems, while identifying future needs to help save organic and conventional citrus alike. Join Dr. Amber Sciligo, Science Program Manager at The Organic Center, and Ellen Cochrane on Thursday, May 9 at 2:00 P.M. ET for a one-hour webinar as our presenters discuss the effect Citrus Greening disease has had on the Florida citrus industry, especially in organic, and provide a high-level overview of the study’s findings.
