California Citrus Research Board (CRB)

The Citrus Research Program is the grower-funded and grower-directed program established in 1968 under the California Marketing Act as the mechanism enabling the state's citrus producers to sponsor and support needed research. The program is administered by the Citrus Research Board, which is better known in the industry as simply "CRB."

  •  Psyllid Management Area Meetings in Tulare County

    Coordinated treatments are the most effective way to manage the Asian citrus psyllid and protect our state’s citrus from the incurable Huanglongbing disease.  Area-wide treatment is coordinated through localized “Psyllid Management Areas”, or PMAs, and lays the framework for how neighboring growers should synchronize treatments for the maximum impact on this pest if/when there is an infestation.
