PMN Publishes Grant Outreach Webcast on Citrus Greening


Dr. Tim Gottwald, Research Leader in Plant Pathology at USDA-ARS, recently developed a survey to help predict the spread of Citrus Greening (aka Huanglongbing), allowing users to maximize their resources for detection, response, and control. Gottwald discusses this survey through a PMN grant outreach webcast, titled “Risk-Based Residential HLB/ACP Survey for California, Texas, and Arizona”. To learn more about how your grant-funded research can be featured in a webcast, contact Phil Bogdan, PMN/APS Staff, at
