“The California Citrus Nursery Board is one of many groups working to keep close tabs on the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) insect and Huanglongbing disease (HLB), both threats to the Western U.S. citrus industry. The ACP insect carries the dreaded HLB disease, but so far the insect, not the disease, has been found in California and Arizona. The Citrus Research Board has a wide range of proactive activities  underway to fight ACP and HLB. Western Farm Press Associate Editor Cary Blake talks with the Board’s MaryLou Polek.”
