The May issue of Citrus Industry magazine offers something for everyone. Topics this month include: • Citrus tristeza virus (CTV) is still a threat in Florida, particularly on trees grown on sour orange rootstock. Researchers report finding CTV in psyllids as well as trees that are infected with both HLB and CTV. • Efforts to create better orange juice for consumers are underway. New varieties have been developed from various citrus breeding methods. Find out the most promising varieties for juice. • Take a virtual tour of Israel’s citrus industry. While many of the challenges are the same, some of the production practices are different from those commonly used in Florida. • An article on safety symbols found on pesticide labels will help you earn a continuing education unit for the Florida restricted-use pesticide license. Citrus Industry readers will also want to listen to the latest episode of the All In For Citrus podcast. Hear highlights from the Florida Citrus Growers’ Institute and a summary of findings from the International Research Conference on HLB.
