Local News Reporting on Citrus Greening
Our very own Tim Brown from Brown’s Grove was highlighted in a channel 10 news report on the devastation of Citrus Greening, a disease carried by a small bug that is wiping out Florida citrus crops.
The disease is transmitted by the Asian citrus psyllid. While there is currently no cure, researchers are experimenting with antibiotics like penicillin.
NBC News also reported on the citrus greening and you can watch that video here.
