FORWARD


Welcome to the Forty-Sixth Annual Citrus Packinghouse Day! Throughout the day,
scientists from the University of Florida, the United States Department of Agriculture, and the
Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Plant Industry will
present practical information of interest to your business.
This year's program will focus primarily, though not exclusively, on issues dealing with
citrus canker. Topics presented will include:

> Status of the new citrus canker proposed rule and resources in place to support
shipping fresh citrus this season

> Canker: An update on bacterial survival in packinghouses and beyond

> Bactericidal coatings: an added defense for fruit on the packingline

> Exploring the risks of transmitting citrus canker by way of fresh fruit

> Exploring the potential for electronic grading of fruit with canker lesions

> Argentine citrus handling practices used to prevent shipment of fresh fruit with
canker symptoms

> Laser etching: a future tool for citrus labeling

Packinghouse Day presentations will be split this year between morning and afternoon
sessions to facilitate interaction with exhibitors and participation in hands-on training
workshops. Certificates will be issued to those completing each training workshop. The two
training workshops offered this year are:

> Principles and practices for reducing fruit microbial contamination

> Canker identification on fresh fruit

Another major change this year is the relocation of exhibitors to the foyer and adjacent
room of the Ben Hill Griffin Jr. Auditorium. This will further facilitate interaction between
participants and exhibitors. Because of a generous donation from DECCO, an excellent lunch
will again be provided to the first 200 people to register. Be sure to stop by DECCO's exhibitor
booth to say thanks! Representatives from almost 20 companies will be on hand to provide
valuable information for your business. Be sure to check out what they have to offer. An
exhibitor list is provided including the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and products
sold.
Be sure to stick around for the door prize drawings. We will be giving out $200 in door
prizes. The only catch is that you have to be present to win. One of the door prizes will be
given out in the exhibitor area. Also, please complete and turn in an evaluation form, they
provide us with valuable feedback on how we can improve Packinghouse Day.
