Start Date: Oct 01, 2010
End Date: Sep 30, 2011
Keep greening-infected citrus production regions of the United States productive, slow or prevent the spread of greening, and maintain healthy citrus groves free of the disease.
Develop citrus trees that are resistant or tolerant to greening, suppress or eliminate populations of the Asian citrus psyllid vector and/or interfere with their ability to transmit greening, and develop methods that can be used as curatives for the disease.
