The Organic Center has a web seminar on citrus greening/huanglongbing and how to fight it while maintaining organic integrity.

The free web seminar, 2 p.m. Eastern on May 9, features Amber Sciligo, science program manager at The Organic Center, and Ellen Cochrane, a University of Florida researcher.

The Organic Center recently published a report on a “rigorous, multi-faceted approach to protecting citrus trees in organic systems, while identifying future needs to help save organic and conventional citrus,” according to a news release from the center.

Sciligo discussed the research at The Packer’s Global Organic Produce Expo Feb. 1 in Hollywood, Fla.

Registration is available online.
