• Arizona Cooperative Citrus Registration-Certification Program Anticipates Increased Activity

      McDonald, Herbert H. (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 1986-12)
      Activity under the Arizona Cooperative Citrus Registration- Certification Program was at a new low during 1984 and 1985; no trees were budded under the program during that period. however, increased budding and bud sales during 1986 herald increased activity in the future. Because the program has continued to receive the support of the citrus industry, services have been provided uninterrupted. The program continues to maintain the foundation blocks insuring the industry with sources of budwood that have successfully met all requirements for: 1) freedom from known viruses or virus-like disorders, 2) freedom from injurious pests and diseases, and 3) trueness to horticultural type.
