Florida Citrus Industry Expresses Concerns

Over Proposed Clementine Rules

USDA-APHIS Holds Hearing at CREC


The USDA Animal and
Plant Health Inspection
Service (APHIS) held a
public hearing on a pro-
posed rule regarding the
importation of clementines
from Spain at CREC on
August 22.
Last December, the
USDA suspended the im-
portation of clementines

Spain caller live Mediterra-
nean fruit fly larvae were found in cold-treated fruit shipped to the
U.S. Mediterranean fruit flies. orMedflies, threaten over250 kinds
of fruits, nuts and vegetables.
APHIS is proposing to resume the importation of clementines
from Spain, provided that certain pre-treatment and post-treatment
requirements are met. Interested persons were allow ed to express
their views on the proposed rule on August 20 in Oxnard, Califor-
nia, and at the meeting at C REC"
"The crops that would be harmed by Medil, bring over $10
billion to Florida each year," said Connie Riherd.
Assistant Director of the FL Dept. of Agric.
and Consumer Services (FDACS) Division of "The crops that
Plant Industry. Riherd said there was concern harmed by Med fl
because the rule allows for the monitoring of $10 billion to Flo
Medfly traps in Spanish groves by the citrus Connie
growers. She siad the FDACS recommends that
monitoring be conducted by Spanish officials and that the entire
process monitored by the USDA.
The proposed rule also calls for a 2-day extension to current
cold treatment protocols to kill Medfly larvae en route to the U.S.
Several argued that there is no data to support that this 2-day
extension to the cold treatments, under the rule's specifications
would be effective in killing Med fl> larvae. Mike Stuart, President
of the Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association (FFVA), urged APHIS

to delay a final decision until further research on cold treatments
could be conducted.
In addition to FFVA and FDACS, representatives from Florida
Citrus Mutual, Florida C(irIus Packers. Florida Farm Bureau and
several agriculture producers testified at the meeting. James Mor-
gan of Morgan Farms told the APHIS panel that he's faced freezes,
drought, hurricanes, and economic recessions and depressions.
"The Mediterranean fruit fly, in our opinion, is the higgr-s problem
we've ever faced."
Several representatives said that ifa Medfly
outbreak were to occur in the U.S., it is ques-
ould be tionable whether aerial spraying of malathion

ida each year." areas. "Aerial spraying of pesticides may be a
Rihwrd. FDACS thing of the past," said Pat C ockr.ll. Florida
Farm Bureau's Director ofAgricu'rural Farm
Policy. -'Citizen outcry can stop an eradication program."
Dunng Florida's most recent Medfls infestation in the late I oi.i's,
millions were spent on an eradication program, which included the
use of sterile males and aerial malathion sprays over both urban
and agricultural areas. The aerial spraying drew public ire in the
media, particularly in the Tampa Bay area.

further research on thiophanate-methyl (Tops'n ', a fungicide cur-
rently used on apples and other fruits. The fungicide studies are
part of a cooperative effort that includes Ritenour. Dr. Ed Stover
and Michael Burnon lIUF/IFAS IRREC). Dr Greg Mcl( ollum I USD A-

New Ft. Pierce Postharvest Facility The UF/IFAS
Indian River Research and Education Center (IRREC) is holding an
open house for a new postharvest facility on September 19. The
facility includes fruit quality analysis machines, temperature-con-
trolled degreening rooms, cold storage rooms, a citrus washer-waxer
and juicer extractor. "The postharvest facility will be used to de-
velop improved degreening methods. packing procedures and meth-
ods to maintain quality and extend shelf Ilke of Florida's fresh hor-
ticultural products," said Dr. Mark Ritenour. Assistant Professor of
Horticulture. IRREC also opened a new 20.000 square foot teach-

New REC in Balm UF/IFAS has announced the intent to
locate a new consolidated research and education center at a 475-

site at Dover. The center will conduct research on tomatoes and
vegetables, ornamental and flo ering plants, and strawberries.

By Eric Johason
September 1 1. 2001 is an important day in American history and has
come to mean many things to many different people Some people
have found fear, hate, and some joy. I myself have found a new
beginning Before September 1 lth, I had started to become con-
sumed in my job and began to neglect the things in my life that were
once the most important to me. After September 1 I h. I began to
look back at my life and try to figure out exactly% why God kept me
here. I have spent many hours soul searching and although I have
not found a definitive answer to my question, there are a couple of
things that have become abundantly clear to me and I will share
them with you.
The first is to live yourlife with no regrets Many people go through
life alna a wanting to try something different. visit a certain place,
or hold a certain occupation. My advice is to do that certain thing,
whatever it may be, because there may come a time when you don't
have that option any more.
Secondly. do not hide your emotions and feelings towards friends
and family. There are times in our lives when we are hardheaded and
hold grudges over trivial matters. After September 11th, I have
realized that sometimes there isn't a chance to apologize or forgive
someone and tell them what they mean to you. Tell people what
the) mean to you \ hi le you have the chance. Be the bigger person.
Finally, spend time with the people that you love. There are certain
people in my life that I have always taken for granted I have learned
not to take anyone for granted. God does not discriminate on who
he takes or when. Spend time with ) our lo ed ones it will help you
build memones that w ill last forever.


I know many of these thoughts sound cliche, but there will come a
time in every life that they will be true. The events of September
11th changed my life forever and hopefully one day I will find out
why God sated my life that day. But until then. Iam going to try to
live my life doing all the things I thought I would not get a chance
to do on September 11, 2002. Take a minute to reflect on your life
from time to time and remember this quote: "It is not the years in
your life, but the life in your years."


by Chalee Johnson
September I 1,2001 affected me in a very personal way. My oldest
son was in WTC #2. He is tll here today, so I have one of the most
wonderful stories to tell.
My life from that moment forward has taken on a deeper intensity.
I remember very vividly what I was wearing and how incredibly
scared I was when a good friend came to tell me what had hap-
pened. However, during a prayer with my minister and friends at
work, and on the way home with my husband, I had this peace
come over me. Although I didn't know if my son was still alive, I
knew God would see me through whatever I had to face.
A year later I find myself trying to approach life in a more inten-
tional way. When I wake up, I prayerfully start each day b. thank-
ing God for my family. I am more keenly aware of people and nature
and try not to be so preoccupied with my own life. I found myself
compelled to volunteer with a group of handicapped youth. This
has helped to renew my spirit and give back in some small way.
The thing that moves me the most every time I see it is the Ameri-
can flag. When my son left the towers, he took a picture as they
were beginning to fall. When he had the film developed, there was
an American flag in the foreground of the picture He said, "Mom,
I didn't notice the flag when I took the picture, but when it was
developed, there it was."
The flag is the symbol that gave me hope and renews my soul
whenever I see it display ed. God continues to bless America.


Citrus Canker Info

Citrus canker was recently detected in residential areas in Cape Coral in Lee County. Inspectors continue to find hundreds of
positive trees weekly in the Dade/Broward/Palm Beach County area. CREC personnel are minded that canker decontamina-
tion/disinfection procedures are mandatory for equipment and personnel working near or contacting any citrus plant. This
includes strict limitations on the movement of plant material, including fruit, on or offCenter. Info is posted on a bulletin board
outside the CREC Mailroom, and questions can be directed to Dr. Pete Timmer.
