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.
PEPTIDES: What Are They and How They May Help in the Fight Against HLB – On November 18, 2020, Citrus Research and Development Foundation co-hosted this Virtual Educational Session with Florida Citrus Mutual.
