Mexico: Cultivation of limes may disappear

The complete production of limes in Colima, Mexico could disappear within six years, says PUC (Productores Unidos por Colima, united producers of Colima). According to its chairman, Arnoldo Vizcano, the strategy adopted by the government to battle the disease known as ‘the yellow dragon’ (HLB) isn’t working.

“The situation is worsening,” Vizcano says. He adds things will grow even more dire than in Michoacán de Ocampo (one of the 32 Federal States of Mexico), where 50% of the population lives in the danger zone.
