The CDFA’s California Citrus Pest & Disease Prevention Committee meeting scheduled for Wednesday August 14, 2013, will be open to the general public and also available via webinar. Issues to be addressed include the Tulare response, San Diego-revised treatment plan, USDA Mexico program update, and regulatory reform updates.
The committee was created to advise the Secretary and the agricultural industry about efforts to combat serious pests and diseases that threaten the State's citrus crop. Most recently, for example, California's citrus growers are confronting the arrival of the Asian citrus psyllid, a tiny pest that can spread the fatal citrus disease huanglongbing.
Further meeting details can be found here.
