Citrus growers and industry members in Ventura County are invited to attend a virtual meeting on Monday, March 15 (9 – 11 a.m.) to help prepare for regulatory requirements that may be expected of you in the event that Huanglongbing (HLB) is detected nearby. Representatives from the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and the County Agricultural Commissioner’s office will be presenting on HLB regulatory protocols and mitigations for moving bulk citrus when there is a HLB quarantine. This is also an opportunity to ask questions of the regulators!
