No greening in Argentina

This article was originally published in Foodnews

ARGENTINA remains 100% free of Huanglongbing, HLB disease, or citrus greening. The country's national prevention programme, which is being implemented by its agriculture ministry, together with other public and private institutions, announced that 5 700 production sites in citrus producing zones have been inspected. Vladimir Pekic writes: some 3 000 samples of plant material with suspicious symptoms and HLB's insect vector, Diaphorina citri, were collected and all tested negative for HLB. The combined efforts of Argentina's public and private sectors to preserve national citrus production free of the disease gained importance after HLB began spreading throughout neighbouring Brazil. In late 2009, the National Animal Health and Agri-food Quality Service of Argentina declared a phytosanitary emergency and monitoring of the citrus producing areas started.
