ACP and HLB Management Survey – Input Requested

Statewide

Researchers from Sacramento State and the University of California, Riverside are requesting the input of citrus industry members from across the state to help examine the economics of Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) and Huanglongbing (HLB) management in California citrus groves.

The research team is looking for growers, advisors and other citrus industry members in California to provide input on overall knowledge of ACP and HLB, how they obtain information on the pest and disease and how it might influence grove management practices. What is learned from this survey will help advance an economic analysis, contribute to overall understanding of ACP and HLB management, and improve the design and effectiveness of outreach and extension resources to manage ACP and HLB.

If you are interested in providing input for this forthcoming research, please click here to complete the full survey.

This study is part of a broader USDA Emergency Citrus Disease Research and Extension-funded project investigating microbial biocontrol to help in the fight against Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus, the bacteria which causes HLB.

If you have any questions about this survey or the research project, please contact: Jonathan Kaplan, Ph.D., California State University, Sacramento, kaplanj@csus.edu.
