Abstract:

Citrus canker, caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri, a bacteria associated with citrus leafminer (CLM), Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) damage, and Huanglongbing (HLB) . Successful completion of this project will provide citrus growers with a valuable tool for managing these two terrifying diseases, and enhance the diagnosis of diseased trees, even in the beginning stages of infection. If successful, there is a high potential that this pathogen sensory system could be used throughout the agricultural industry and beyond, including public health and those orchards that cannot or do not use conventional pesticides.
