Strategic Planning for the Florida Citrus Industry: Addressing Citrus Greening Disease
“brainstorming” of new approaches. Discussions at the Symposium have resulted in PIs taking new directions in their research.
Research and development communication on Pierce’s disease research is also greatly facilitated through a contract from the CDFA with the University of California’s Public Intellectual Property Resource for Agriculture (PIPRA). Two of the important services provided by PIPRA take the form of databases (http://www.piercesdisease.org). One of these is a nearly constantly updated repository of all references to research and other publications on Pierce’s disease. The other is a compendium of progress reports submitted by research grant-supported Pierce’s disease projects. The California Pierce’s Disease Control Board has taken the responsibility of public education about Pierce’s disease and has employed a public relations firm to prepare announcements and other documents for growers and the general public. An example is “Pierce’s Disease. A Decade of Progress,” which is available at http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/pdcp/.
