Coordinated treatments are the most effective way to manage the Asian citrus psyllid and protect our state’s citrus from the incurable Huanglongbing disease. Area-wide treatment is coordinated through localized “Psyllid Management Areas”, or PMAs, and lays the framework for how neighboring growers should synchronize treatments for the maximum impact on this pest if/when there is an infestation.

CRB Past Research - Deficit Irrigation - David A. Goldhamer
In a year when water is scarce, deficit irrigation is a method to consider. CRB funded two research projects on regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) conducted by David Goldhamer in 1997-2000 and 2002-2006. You can find these project reports categorized by year below.
Regulated Deficit Irrigation of Orange Under High Evaporative Demand - Goldhamer 1997 1998 1999 2000 (Completion Report) Using Regulated Deficit Irrigation to Optimize Size in Late Harvest Navels - Goldhamer 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 (Completion Report)
