Join the Hidalgo County Texas AgriLIFE EXTENSION Service in learning more about Citrus Greening Disease during our FREE program trainings and information sessions!

Citrus Greening Disease was found in a commercial grove in San Juan, Texas last month. As you may have already heard, Citrus Greening is a devastating bacterial disease that affects the production, quality, and appearance of citrus trees.

We will be providing handouts and other materials regarding chemicals that are safe to use, including organic controls, because we all need to treat our citrus to protect our trees and this valuable industry.
