Backyard Citrus, is the end at hand?

Citrus greening disease

Part of the appeal of the Florida dream is being able to go out to your backyard grab some fresh fruit off the tree and squeeze it into juice. This is the life!

Unfortunately, life as we know it maybe at the end. Due to Citrus Greening disease.

Citrus Greening is a terminal disease that has destroyed over 70% of the commercial citrus trees in the State of Florida. This disease originated in Asia and has migrated its way here several years ago.

Please follow this link to the Florida Department of Agriculture Bulletin on Citrus Greening, paying particular Note 2 the photos that showed the symptomology.

UF/IFAS Citrus Extension: Plant Pathology

The only defense that I can recommend at this point against the disease is continuous ongoing fertilization and insect control. Healthy trees have the ability to fight off diseases and pathogens. Efforts are underway by the Department of Agriculture two develop a genetic hybrid of citrus that is resistant to this disease. However, the reality is that these hybrids are probably 2 to 4 years away from being released to the public. If you must plant citrus I suggest that you use mango, papaya, or avocado. These trees are not affected by the disease.
