Suggested support mechanism: This area is NOT recommended for support because there is no indication that psyllids can be reared on a synthetic diet, let alone on a large scale. However, development of an artificial diet for use in large-scale rearing of ACP could justify support. Even if large-scale rearing were to be achieved, the future possible research projects indicated above present tremendous technological challenges.
Time to outcome: Long-term.
