Though citrus greening is not known to be in Texas, it has wreaked havoc in Florida. ARS researchers in Weslaco, Texas, are collaborating with University of Florida researchers to fight the disease. Above, agricultural engineer Chenghai Yang (left) and soil scientist Reginald Fletcher, both with ARS at Weslaco, evaluate an aerial color-infrared image of an infected citrus grove in Florida. Trees infected with the disease have been removed from the grove as shown by the white areas and gaps along the rows. By removing infected trees, the researchers hope to prevent the disease from spreading.
