Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack announced $30 million in funding for 22 projects to help citrus producers combat Huanglongbing (HLB). Better known as citrus greening, HLB is a devastating citrus disease that is threatening U.S. citrus production. The HLB funds will support a variety of projects that could offer near-term solutions as well as underwrite research funding that may develop long-terms solutions. “Funding these projects through cooperative agreements puts us one step closer to putting real tools to fight this disease into the hands of citrus growers,” said Secretary Vilsack.
