Biopesticides company Certis USA has donated another $20,000 to the Citrus Research and Development Foundation Inc., to help in its research on huanglongbing.

Also known as citrus greening disease and HLB, the disease has devastated the Florida citrus industry and has been detected in other citrus-producing states.

It’s the fourth year Certis USA, Columbia, Md., has made the donation, according to a news release, through its “Certis for Citrus” program that uses sales from top products to fund the foundation’s work.

“The Florida citrus community trusts our Kocide family of products for the effective control of bacterial and fungal diseases in their groves,” product manager Jerry Adamson said in the release. “We are happy to show our gratitude for that support each year through the ‘Certis for Citrus’ donation to fund the amazing work being done by our friends at the CRDF.”
