Research Project: DEVELOPMENT OF AN AREA-WIDE APPROACH FOR CONTROLLING INFECTION AND SPREAD OF HLB BY ASIAN CITRUS PSYLLID Project Number: 6204-43000-015-03
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Oct 01, 2008
End Date: Jun 30, 2012

Objective:
Identify technologies for protecting commercial citrus trees from Huanglongbing (HLB)infection spread by Asian Citrus Psyllid.
