Citrus greening prevention

This article was originally published in Foodnews

RESEARCHERS, citrus producers and government institutions in Brazil’s Bahia state, the second largest orange producer after São Paulo state, are strengthening their partnership in order to prevent the spread of Huanglongbing (HLB), or citrus greening disease, from the affected regions in Brazil. HLB is already present in São Paulo, the Triângulo Mineiro region in Minas Gerais state and northern Paraná state. “The citrus production sector in Bahia is a priority of the [state] government,” said Eduardo Salles, Bahia’s state agriculture secretary. Citrus producers in Bahia last year harvested 987813 tonnes of oranges and this year’s production is expected to reach 1.02 million tonnes. HLB has still not been detected in Bahia, or in Brazil’s northeast, north and central-west regions.
