Restrictions have been lifted on the movement of citrus fruit and citrus plants in Tulare County. As a result of detections of the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) in the Lindsay/Strathmore and Terra Bella areas in October and November 2012, citrus fruit was only allowed to move outside the restricted zones if it had been treated according to requirements and then commercially cleaned and packed.

Crop Protection

Western Growers is engaged in the defense of critical crop protection tools and remains active at the federal, state and local levels.  When restrictions are necessary, we work with regulators to ensure they are based on science and that they protect public health without diminishing efficacy in the field. This marriage of science and policy is where Advocacy and Science & Technology units at Western Growers come together for the benefit of our members.
