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 4th quarter of year 1 of a 2 year project. For the 4th quarter of year 1, a total of 8,343 samples were processed and sent out. This brings the total for year 1 to 26,370 or approximately 15% over the budgeted amount (22,500) for the period. 2. Please state what work is anticipated for next quarter: The submission of samples is completely at the discretion of the submitter and as such is somewhat variable. During the initial days of the Covid-19 pandemic, the number of samples was somewhat reduced. However, since University and others have been allowed to return back to work, the number of samples has increased substantially. It is unclear if these are “catch up” samples or if this will reflect the trend for the coming year. I project that we will probably be at or above the budgeted amount of samples (22,500) for year 2. 3. Please state budget status (underspend or overspend, and why): For year 1 of the project, we processed approximately 15% more samples than were budgeted. 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.
