Citrus Greening

Huanglongbing, commonly called citrus greening, is a serious disease in Florida. Transmitted by tiny insects called psyllids, greening can rapidly spread through orange trees and other citrus. Infected mature trees decline in health and stop producing fruit, and young trees that become infected will never produce fruit. Officials warn the state's $9.3-billion citrus industry could be wiped out in ten years if citrus greening is not wiped out.
