Invaders could devastate Florida avocado industry
Date:9/21/2010

need for quick action to address this rapidly moving disease. "The results of our investigation indicate that the direct loss to the industry in terms of lost sales, property damage, and increased management costs could range from $356 million in a do-nothing situation to about $183 million if damage control measure were 50% effective", stated Dr. Jonathan Crane, who headed the research effort. Crane added that this estimate could be considered conservative, since the study did not include the economic impact on noncommercial production, residential infestations, avocado or forest trees, scenic beauty, wildlife, or the loss of canopy cover.

The report concluded with recommendations to implement policies and ramp up research efforts aimed at decelerating the spread of the disease and developing effective treatments to preserve the important Florida avocado industry.
