UC ANR Cooperative Extension Specialists in Ag and Research Extension (ARE) have ongoing discussions on major topics related to CA ag. All are invited to listen in.
The upcoming ARE Discussions webinar will focus on the economic impact and challenges of the California citrus industry.
Disease pressure and regulatory challenges are persistent issues that growers must address in California's $3.4 billion citrus industry. Join us on Tuesday, May 11th from 10:00-11:30 am (PST), where Dr. Bruce Babcock (Professor of Public Policy, UC Riverside) will provide an overview of the California citrus industry and challenges facing growers, and Dr. Ariel Singerman (Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist, University of Florida) will provide insights from the Florida citrus industry and discuss their experiences attempting to control the spread of citrus greening (Huanglongbing) disease.
