Research Project: Large-scale Breeding and Evaluation of the Next Generation of Superior Rootstocks for Citrus Production in Regions with Huanglongbing (HLB)

Location: Crop Diseases, Pests and Genetics Research

Project Number: 2034-22000-015-009-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Oct 1, 2023
End Date: Sep 14, 2028

Determine commercial potential of new rootstocks selections with HLB resistance in major citrus growing regions.

Twelve different rootstocks will be established in field plantings to assesss fruit and horticultural traits. Effects of water quality and water availability will be assessed for the same rootstocks in the greenhouse.
