FiBL-Projektnummer 65088

Coop is sourcing organic citrus juices from Cuba and from Mexico. Since a couple of years, a new disease is threatening the outstanding quality of these proveniences: the Huanglongbing citrus greening disease (HLB). For both countries, the research for solution to this disease is of high priority. Therefore within the frame of this project, FiBL is developing a holistic management concept of the HLB disease in organic citrus production.

HLB is a highly contagious bacterial disease and affecting the quality of the juices, reducing its ratio, as well as the yield and the general health of the citrus trees. To control HLB with the methods of organic farming is a big challenge. This project aims to provide practical solutions for the organic management of the HLB disease to organic citrus producers. Further, the project aims a south-south exchange between organic citrus producers, as well as a cooperation with local research and advisory centers, under the coordination of FiBL.
