Brazil bodies join to combat citrus greening disease

A joint action to eliminate citrus greening disease is under way in Brazil among government, farmers and researchers. The Ministry of Agriculture will lead a consortium of public bodies and crop protection agencies from the state of Sao Paulo, Parana and Minas Gerais. The work is to be carried out in the three states. Measures to combat the disease include the elaboration of a plan within 15 days to integrate the scientific community, which has been working to control the disease, and revision of the regulation, NI 32. It made farmers responsible for checking crops for the evidence of the disease and destroying infected plants. One proposal would count on the support of the public prosecutor’s office to work alongside the Ministry and inspectors in a contaminated area. The disease can quickly spread to neighbouring farms. A public education programme is to be initiated in all citrus growing areas.
