I know that I have 4 trees infected right now. It's really a shame and I wonder what future the citrus industry has here not to mention the orange blossom honey crop.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Scott....
  To me it looks likes the beginning of the end for citrus and orange blossom honey crop.  I do hope I'm wrong.

Many citrus growers are looking for alternative crops right now with things such as pomegranate a possibility. Many scattered groves out there that have been sold off and no longer in production but still have rows and rows of trees that are infected. All contributing to the problem. You know, sort of like bee disease....a lot of it is about what your neighbor is doing to address the problem also.  rolleyes

Yeah, it looks pretty bleak. I understand that even the agriculture commissioner is saying the citrus industry will be gone in five years.

Azomite claims to cure it. Google it for more info.

Azomite is nothing more than a volcanic trace element mix. A vigorous trace element treatment regime has been shown to reduce the damage to fruit of infected plants and maintain the trees' productivity, it is not a cure.
