The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that $1.5 million in funding will be made available to expand bio-control efforts to fight Huanglongbing (HLB), also known as citrus greening.  Agriculture Secretary Vilsack created a Huanglongbing multi-agency coordination group (HLB MAC Group) in December.  This is the first funding for these efforts made available by the group.   The HLB MAC Group serves to coordinate and prioritize Federal research with industry's efforts to complement and fill research gaps, reduce unnecessary duplication, speed progress, and more quickly provide practical tools for citrus growers to use.  It also fosters greater coordination among federal and state agencies in responding to citrus greening.
