Snively says the cost of using bactericides ranges from $40 to $160 per acre each year depending on the number of applications and other factors.
“It’s another tool,” he says. “I think we just to need to wait and find out what it’s going to look like, what the results are. If it works, that’s great, because we’re in that situation today that we need everything we can to hang on until the ultimate answer comes … I still continue to say, the ultimate answer is going to be tolerant or resistant trees.”
Snively was one of four growers sharing their experiences with bactericides in a panel discussion at the recent Citrus Expo.
