In 2009, the Citrus Research and Development Foundation, Inc. (CRDF) was formed to coordinate citrus research funding in the face of huanglongbing (HLB, also known as “citrus greening”). While it addresses the full array of citrus research needs, CRDF has focused on HLB because it represents an existential threat to the Florida citrus industry.

    Thank you,  Bobby Barben  and  Jerry Newlin,  for ten years of service on the Board of Directors and various committees!  Your dedication, time and continuing efforts are most appreciated!
