Join us September 24 for an Update on Citrus Greening.
Our September meeting will feature two representatives from the University of Florida’s Citrus Research and Education Center. Ms. Jamie Burrow, Extension Program Manager, and Mr. Chris Oswalt, Commercial Citrus Extension Agent.
Jamie and Chris will be talking to our club about citrus greening and the significance of this devastating and as of yet – incurable disease. They will go over the biology of the bacteria and the life cycle of the insect vector, and how this deadly duo is wreaking havoc on Florida’s commercial and door yard citrus.
They’ll also discuss the latest developments in citrus greening research, symptoms of the disease, and answer our questions at the conclusion of their presentation.
