As this summer swings into full gear, the last of the citrus crop is harvested, giving the opportu-
nity to reflect on this past years season. Fruit prices helped citrus producers make record profits
a big change from just three years ago, this coupled with real estates stagnation and disease
pressures in south Florida have renewed central Florida citrus production. Also having a re-
newal of design is Citruslines with its new format. My hope is that you will find it full of the same
great information that you have been receiving over the years. Included with this newsletter is a
survey and evaluation form for our extension program. Please fill it out and return to my office.
This is your opportunity to influence what type of extension activities are offered. I value your
feedback and look forward to your comments. Best of all, those who return their surveys will
be entered into a drawing to win a "free" season of our Weather Watch subscription service!

Greening Update

HLB or Citrus greening disease is being
found more and more throughout the state.
The latest counties with at least one positive
find are Orange, Osceola, Seminole, and
Volusia with a suspected find in Marion.
What does this mean for you? Surveying
your groves for detection of possible
greening infected trees is important.

Steve Futch an extension agent working in
citrus shared his observation from a trip
that Florida growers recently took to Brazil.
This trips purpose was to observe how Bra-
zilian growers are combating citrus green-
ing disease. Dr. Futch mentions that grow-
ers are using a three pronged approached
and liken it to that of a three legged stool.
Take any of the legs away and the stool (or
approach) does not work. The three ap-
proaches are:

1. Survey groves to identify greening in-
fected trees.

2. Eradiation of greening positive trees

3. Aggressively managing the vector of
the disease- the psyllid.

It was told by many Brazilian growers that
psyllid suppression alone would fail, there
needs to be routine identification and re-
moval of diseased trees for a successful
greening management program.

Proper tree removal consists of removing
the tree just above the soil line and apply-
ing a herbicide to kill the trunk. Not treat-
ing the trunk will allow for sprouting and
these sprouts would still be greening posi-
tive.

2006-07 Drought


As we head into the 2007 summer season we finally have re-
ceived some much needed rain with tropical storm Barry. As
of the beginning of June, Florida has been in an eighteen
month drought, the third worst for the state since weather data
has been recorded. There is a renewed awareness of how
precious and limited a resource water is becoming in our state.
Proper irrigation scheduling can help ensure your trees health
and maintain our natural resources. The Florida Automated
Weather Network (F.A.W.N) has an irrigation tool based on
weather conditions in your area and your specific grove char-
acteristics (soil, spacing, emitter, etc.) that can help you opti-
mize your irrigation schedule. The tool can be found at http://

Certified Pile Burner Tavares July Ilth 8:30-4:30 register please


This class is for those who
burn more than 20 days a
year. Certified Pile Burners
can burn on days when the
general public cannot. With
district foresters approval cer-
tified pile burners can start
burning earlier and finish later
than non-certified burners.
Southwest Florida citrus grow-
ers have been conducting a


lot of burning with their
greening management pro-
grams, as is it is suggested to
remove greening positive
trees from your groves. With
the recent wildfire activity the
Division of Forestry has been
restricting burn permits, the
certified pile burner designa-
tion provides the opportunity
to burn more frequently.

Money trickling in for Citrus Greening Research


Many citrus organizations
around the state have been
working hard to find funding
for research that is needed to
combat citrus greening dis-
ease. Currently there is $4
million in the FDACS budget
for the upcoming fiscal year
for working with citrus dis-
eases (canker and greening).
Of this money $250K is for a
diagnostic lab at Immokalee
(UF's SWFREC). The remain-
ing $3.75M is available to the
research box tax council to
distribute. However there is a
matching requirement for the
$3.75 M. Also, the all the mon-
ies must be spent during the
current fiscal year, any un-
used monies will be lost. It is
estimated that there will be
from $1.5 M to $1.7 M gener-


ated from the production re-
search tax next year. This
leaves $2 M to $2.25 M to be
raised in order to take full ad-
vantage of the state funds. The
Florida Citrus Commission had
included one cent per box for
next year's tax to provide some
of the matching funds (once
again $1.5 to $1.7 M). We do
not know if they will approve
this penny at their meeting
June 20th. If they do not, then
there will be a scramble to find
matching dollars. In addition
IFAS has received a one time
non-recurring $500,000 from
the state for disease tolerant
plant development. There is
also work being down by in-
dustry groups in Washington
D.C. trying to get some federal
funding.


"We are pleased to get
some funding from the
state but when you
compare the 4 million
dollars for greening
research to the 50
million dollars for
ethanol research it
seems a bit low. The
citrus industry is here
today and brings in a
billion dollars to
Florida's economy
whereas an ethanol
industry is just a
theoretical idea for the
future"
-Peter McClure, Chairman of the
Florida Citrus Production
Research Advisory Council

USDA Releases two new citrus rootstocks US-897 & US-802


The agricultural research
service, U.S.D.A. has re-
leased two new citrus root-
stocks US-897 & US-802.
The US-897 originated from
a cross of Cleopatra man-
darin and Flying Dragon
Trifoliate Orange. In all
field evaluations US-897
produced dwarf trees that
had good fruit productivity
on a canopy volume basis
and yielded good fruit
quality. Positive character-
istics of this new rootstock
is resistance or tolerance
to tristeza virus, phy-
tophthora palmivora, and
diaprepes root weevil. A
notable negative of this
rootstock may be a relative
high rate of tree loss after
ten years of age to citrus
blight or a similar disease.

The US-802 originated from
a cross of Siamese pum-
melo and Gotha Road Trifo-
liate Orange. In all field
evaluations US-802 pro-
duced vigorous and pro-
ductive trees that were tol-
erant of disease and pest
problems and exhibited
excellent survival. Positive
characteristics of this new


rootstock is resistance or tolerance to citrus tristeza virus, citrus
blight, Phytophthora palmivora, and diaprepes root weevil.
Also it induces high vigor and good fruit productivity on grafted
scions. Some negative characteristics of this rootstock are the
tendency for large trees and the production of fruit with low to
intermediate soluble solids concentration.




Tables are reproduced from official USDA rootstock announcements.

Whole Foods Market Announces Low-Interest Loan Program
For Local Food Producers


Whole Foods Market, the
leading organic and natural
foods supermarket, is seeking
local farmers and other food
producers who are interested
in participating in its new Lo-
cal Producer Loan Program.
As part of a company-wide ini-
tiative supporting local agri-
cultural producers and food
artisans, the company plans to
provide up to $10 million an-
nually in low-interest loans to
small producers in the U.S.
At five to nine percent, the in-
terest rates currently offered
through Whole Foods Mar-
ket's pilot program to small
agricultural producers can be
extremely attractive. The pro-
gram has other attributes
geared to small producers:
loan application paperwork is
minimized; there are no pen-
alties for early repayment;


and loan terms may be from a
few months to ten years.
The Local Producer Loan Pro-
gram is part of Whole Foods
Market's renewed commit-
ment to local agriculture. This
includes hosting farmers mar-
kets at stand-alone stores, re-
focusing in-store marketing to
highlight locally-produced
products, and hiring regional
staff focused specifically on
sourcing local products.
Producers throughout the U.S.
are invited to participate in
the program. Those interested
can find more information and
a loan application at the web-
site,
www.wholefoodsmarket.com/
products/locallygrown/lplp/
index.html. They can also con-
tact the program coordinators
at plplp(wholefoods.com.


"It is Whole Foods
Market's intention to
help finance local food
production all over the
United States, We are
going to 'walk our talk'
with financial support
for local, small-scale
agriculture. We believe
this financial
assistance of up to $10
million per year can
make a very significant
difference in helping
local food production
grow and flourish
across the United
States."

John Mackey, co-founder and
CEO of Whole Foods

Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) in Honey Bees


Over the years, the beekeep-
ing industry in the United
States has faced a number of
obstacles. Now a new prob-
lem threatens the beekeeping
industry, and it may eclipse
altogether the bee maladies of
old. Termed "colony collapse
disorder" (CCD), the disorder
has gained considerable na-
tional and international atten-
tion.
Beekeepers around the United
States have reported higher-
than-usual colony losses since
the fall of 2006. Some bee-
keepers in states reporting
CCD have lost fifty to ninety
percent of their colonies, often
within a matter of weeks. In a
country where honey bees
contribute billions of dollars in
added revenue to the agricul-
ture industry, these bee losses
cannot be taken lightly.
Symptomatically, colonies
with CCD can appear healthy
as few as three weeks prior to
collapse. However, the adult
bees soon "disappear" (hence
its historic nickname
"disappearing disease") from
the colonies, leaving behind a
box full of honey, pollen,
capped brood, a queen, and


maybe a few worker bees.
Beekeepers report that colo-
nies with CCD do not contain
any dead bees, neither are
there dead bees on the
ground outside of the colo-
nies. The adult bees simply
vanish. The final symptom is
that small hive beetles, wax
moths, and other nearby
honey bees ignore the empty
hives even though the hives
contain foodstuffs on which
they ordinarily feed.
The cause of CCD is under in-
vestigation. At this point, al-
most every conceivable and
realistic cause remains a pos-
sibility. The leading candi-
dates and a brief explanation
of their potential role are
listed as:


1. Traditional bee pests and
diseases.

2. Style of feeding bees and
type of bee food.
3. Bee management.
4. Queen source.
5. Chemical use in bee colo-
nies.
6. Chemical toxins in the en-
vironment.

7. Genetically modified
crops.
8. Varroa mites and associ-
ated pathogens.
9. Nutritional fitness.

10. Undiscovered or new pests
and diseases.

Agricultural Theft

Has your agricultural opera-
tion ever been a victim of
theft? No matter how small the
theft you are encouraged to
report the crime to the local
authorities. Once a crime
such as agricultural theft is
conducted across county
lines, such as a theft ring car-
rying equipment, commodi-
ties/products, chemicals, etc.,


then the Florida Attorney Gen-
eral's office gets in-
volved. There are unlawful
organizations that move trac-
tors and other agricultural
equipment and/or products
out of the country. Law en-
forcement offices around the
state are working together to
make sure these crimes don't
go unpunished.


Here is a list of numbers to call
if you have a theft to report.
Lake Co. 352-343-2101
Orange Co. 407-836-4357
Seminole Co.407-665-6650
Marion Co. 352-732-9111

Bee Aware -Africanized Honey Bees


African Honey Bees (AHB) of-
ten referred to as "killer
bees" continue to spread thru
Florida. AHBs breed and
compete with the European
strains of honey bees that nor-
mally inhabit our state. Be-
cause Florida's AHB popula-
tion is increasing, it is impor-
tant to become familiar with
AHBs and their behavior.
Africanized honey bees can
interbreed with European
bees, which means that all
wild colonies of bees are at
risk of being European/
African crosses. The Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services currently
recommends that all wild bee


hives be exterminated by cer-
tified pest control operators.
If you are stung by any type of
bee, do not stay in one place
and swat the bees. Remem-
ber, AHBs are trying to defend
their nest. When a stinging
event happens, you are too
close to the nest, and you
need to leave the area imme-
diately. If you stand still, the
bees may become more agi-
tated. Cover your nose and
mouth with your shirt as you
run. This restricts bee access
to your airways.
Furthermore, do not hide in
thick underbrush or water. It
may take the bees thirty min-
utes or longer to leave an


area. Finally, seek shelter in a
building or vehicle. Some
bees will probably enter the
shelter with you, but not as
many as will remain outside.
If you witness an attack, do not
go to the victim and try to
help. It is better to stand at a
safe distance and yell to the
person to leave the area as
quickly as possible.

"Floridians are used to
living among
dangerous animals and
insects education is
the key to staying safe."

Commissioner of FDACS

* Enhancing the development of human resources.
Improving the quality of human life.


Greening symptoms are most visible in fall and winter
months. However, some greening symptoms have been
observed this summer such as small yellow leaves with
green islands. These leaves are found are typically found
on new flush occurring near the outer canopy of the tree.
Extreme zinc deficient leaves show this same characteristic.
Maintaining tree health with a proper fertilization program
helps eliminate confusion when scouting for greening
symptoms in your grove.
