Citrus Research Board and University of California

CRB and UC create $1 million endowment for US citrus research

Central Valley citrus has managed to fend off the far-reaching Asian citrus psyllid and the Huanglongbing it spreads. But this couldn’t have been achieved without innovation, research and of course cost. Fortunately, the Citrus Research Board and University of California are continuing to help out with regard to that final aspect.

The CRB announced on Monday, October 22, that it and UC Agriculture and Natural Resources have established a $1 million endowment to fund the Presidential Researcher for Sustainable Citrus Clonal Protection at the UC Lindcove Research and Extension Center. The endowed researcher will provide a UC Cooperative Extension scientist a dedicated source of funds to support scholarly activities focused on the long-term sustainability of the citrus industry.
