Early detection technologies can become valuable tools for identifying huanglongbing (HLB) positive trees before physical symptoms of the disease appear.

A massive amount of research is being conducted, but for a variety of reasons, the new technologies are not being utilized in the field or for regulatory application.

California Citrus Mutual and the Citrus Research Board invite you to learn more about these complex technologies at the HLB Early Detection Technology Summit to be held at the Visalia Convention Center on Tuesday, December 1 at 9 a.m.

The Summit will include presentations from the lead researchers working on early detection technologies, and a panel discussion featuring California Department of Food and Agriculture and United States Department of Agriculture officials and industry representatives on if, when, and how these technologies can be used in California.

Lunch is provided and registration is required. For more information and to register, click here.
