Citrus Industry magazineGreening disease, known as HLB, is a top concern for citrus growers worldwide. The April issue of Citrus Industry magazine is all about boosting the health of HLB-infected trees. Articles on this theme cover the use of controlled-release fertilizer, bicarbonate management, foliar nutrition and irrigation strategies.

This month, for the first time Citrus Industry’s CEU Central article offers a continuing education unit in the reader’s choice of one of five pest control categories. Choose from Ag Row Crop, Ag Tree Crop, Forest, Ornamental and Turf or Private Applicator. If you hold a restricted-use pesticide license from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, you won’t want to miss this free and easy educational opportunity.

Despite recent floods, drought remains a top concern for California’s citrus growers. Read more about this topic in the California Corner section of the magazine.

Finally, the Vegetable and Specialty Crop News section of Citrus Industry features an article by University of Florida’s Kevin Folta on how biofuels can benefit both ag producers and the planet.
