1. Please state project objectives and what work was done this quarter to address them: This report is for the continued funding of the Southern Gardens Diagnostic Laboratory that provides testing for citrus greening for researchers, growers and homeowners. The current report is for the 1st quarter of year 2 of a 2 year project. For the first quarter of year 2, a total of 6255 samples were processed and sent out. This brings the total for the project to date to 32,625, or approximately 16% over the amount budgeted for the first 5 quarters of the project. Of the samples run for the period, results for 33% of the samples were reported with copy number as well as Ct values. All of the samples for the current period were plant samples. No psyllid samples were submitted. 2. Please state what work is anticipated for next quarter: The submission of samples is completely at the discretion of the submitters and as such is somewhat variable. The trend for the last few quarters has been to receive large groups of samples from research trials, sometimes upwards of 1000 samples per submission. If this trend continues, we would expect to be above the budgeted amount of samples. 3. Please state budget status (underspend or overspend, and why): Given that we are running 16% above the budgeted amounts, it is likely that we will be over the budgeted number of samples for the project. As has been done in the past, we will wait until the end of year 2 of the project and adjust the final invoice either up or down depending on the total number of samples run during the project. If the number of samples exceeds the budgeted amount, the final invoice will be increased upwards to cover the cost of the consumables. If the number of samples is below the budgeted amount, the final invoice will be reduced to reflect the reduced amount of consumables used.
