1. Please state project objectives and what work was done this quarter to address them: This report is for the continued support of the Southern Gardens Citrus Diagnostic Laboratory that provides testing for citrus greening for researchers, growers, and homeowners. The current report is for the 3rd quarter of year 2 of a 2-year project. For the 3rd quarter of year 2, a total of 10,230 samples were processed and assayed. This brings the total for the project-to-date to 48,550 samples assayed, or 3,550 over the budgeted amount for the whole project (8% over). The projection for the full 2-year period is for the lab to have processed ~23% more than the budgeted amount. There is a growing trend for sample submitters to request copy number determination instead of just a Ct value (52 % of the samples were provided with copy number for this quarter, 59% the previous quarter). This is likely due to the fact that the majority of the samples being submitted are coming from researcher trials where quantitative data are desired. All of the samples for the current period were plant samples. No ACP samples were submitted. 2. Please state what work is anticipated for next quarter: It is anticipated that a higher than budgeted amount of samples will continue to be submitted. This is based on an increase in the number of trials being established that require extensive sampling and to several researchers bringing in backlogged samples. 3. Please state budget status (underspend or overspend, and why): Given that we are running 8% above the budgeted amounts for the whole project (123% over if prorated for 7 quarters), 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.
