Prevention Is the First Line of Defence We Have Against
Citrus Greening Disease

A well fed, healthy tree is the first line of defence in any war on pests, and citrus greening is no exception.

Plant your tree during the cooler weather to lessen the stress of transplanting. We recommend October to early April for North Florida gardens.

When you dig the hole for the new plant, make it at least four times bigger than .  .  .

Organic Protocols May Very Well

Against Citrus Greening

UF entomologist Michael Rogers is working with industry and the Organic Center to research holistic organic solutions for citrus greening.

No Petroleum Solvents

We encourage anyone​ wanting to grow citrus to consider an organic gardening approach.

We believe that harmony with nature is the best way to win this war. Nuking the pests with chemicals just stresses the trees that much more, so any pests left behind can have a field day.

Research has shown that a healthy tree has far more resistance to pests than a stressed tree.
