Citrus Showcase

Although the showcase held several workshops on a variety of topics, the Asian Citrus Psylid and Huanglongbing were a focal point.

Dr Cathleen Enright from Biotechnology Industry Organization talked about the bad reputation of genetically modified organisms and the potential that a new breakthrough with GMOs could aid in the fight against Huanglongbing.

At breakfast, State Water Resources Control Board Chair Felicia Marcus addressed the drought conditions and potential options for a solution.
The showcase included a lunch and expo which featured over 100 vendor booths.
