Bayer CropScience and the Florida Specialty Crop Foundation Join Together to Fight Citrus Greening
Date:9/24/2013

Amelia Island, FL (PRWEB) September 24, 2013

The Florida citrus market has suffered a loss of more than $4.5 billion in crops and is down an estimated 8,300 jobs due to citrus greening disease (1). In an effort to find a solution for the serious disease, Bayer CropScience announced a collaboration with the Florida Specialty Crop Foundation to create a three-year grant program for citrus greening research. The $200,000 grant was awarded to the Citrus Research and Development Foundation (CDRF) at a dinner during the 70th FFVA Annual Meeting.

Citrus greening, also known as Huanglongbing (HLB), is a devastating disease impacting the nation’s orange and other citrus crops. Healthy citrus trees can produce fruit for multiple decades, however, once infected with HLB, trees can yield discolored, inedible fruit and can die in as little as five years.

More than 70 percent of U.S. households regularly consume orange juice and other citrus foods(2), and approximately 80 percent of U.S. orange juice is made from Florida oranges. By reducing the productivity of citrus groves, citrus greening is significantly impacting the future of Florida citrus production and the American diet.

“With this new initiative we continue our focus on finding innovative alternatives to improve the sustainability and economic value of crops from the field all the way to consumers,” said Rob Schrick, horticulture business lead, Bayer CropScience. “Florida Specialty Crop Foundation and CRDF are natural partners for us in this effort, as both organizations have the citrus expertise and outstanding research capabilities needed to combat
