The first quarter of 2016 was very strenuous for Core Citrus Transformation Facility (CCTF). Two out of five employees left the facility in January and were eventually replaced by the new members of staff. CREC Center Director informed CCTF of possible move of the lab to the new site in March. Although March 24th was anticipated date for the move, that did not happen and CCTF still operates from its present location. CCTF received unprecedented number of orders (26) within the last quarter. Such a high volume of incoming orders called for an additional increase in production capacity of CCTF. I have purchased necessary consumables and tools for this transition and have taken steps to gradually ramp-up the input of starting material for experiments. However, uncertainty associated with possible move to new location prevented search for additional employees. I expect new recruit to begin working in the month of April. Partial increase in work load in March was little overwhelming for the present labor force and resulted in loss of some transgenic shoots and plants. I hope that when all aspects of CCTF functioning stabilize, so will the level of our production. The newly announced date for the move to new location is June 17th and I will try to organize it in such a way so that it will affect productivity of CCTF to the least possible extent. Between January and April, CCTF produced 57 plants. These plants belong to newer orders placed within the last 12-15 months. Four of the produced plants were Valencia oranges, three were Pineapple sweet oranges, eight were Carrizo citrange, and the rest were Duncan grapefruit. Transgenic rootstock plants carrying NPR1 produced in our facility are still in our greenhouse. They are at the stage when they could easily be propagated by cuttings. I am awaiting further instructions on what to do with these plants.
