Research Project: Conservation, Management and Distribution of Citrus and Date Genetic Resources and Associated Information

Location: National Clonal Germplasm Repository for Citrus

2021 Annual Report

1. Citrus germplasm distributions support critical Huanglongbing research. Huanglongbing (HLB) is a devastating disease of citrus for which there is currently no cure. Research into HLB biology and management is reliant upon citrus germplasm distributed by NCGRCD. In FY 2021, citrus germplasm was distributed by ARS researchers in Riverside, California, to HLB researchers in Riverside, Davis, and Albany, California; Lake Alfred, Fort Pierce, and Waiauma, Florida; Geneva, New York; and New Haven, Connecticut.
