College Opens Research Greenhouse to Help Control Spread of Citrus Disease The College of Agriculture Celebrates the 2016 Commencement Hicks Scholarship Recipients to Intern Overseas Students Share Research Findings at Asian Citrus Psyllid Symposium
The Cal Poly Pomona College of Agriculture announced the opening of a new 5,040-square-foot greenhouse to support research aimed at controlling the Asian Citrus Psyllid, an insect that spreads a disease that has decimated the citrus industry.. With pomp and circumstance, nearly 500 students graduated at the College of Agricultures Commencement ceremony on June 12. Three College of Agriculture students will spend their summers overseas thanks to the Jim Hicks International Scholarship program. More than 20 students made presentations at the 3rd Annual Asian Citrus Psyllid Student Research Symposium. The Asian Citrus Psyllid is a sap-sucking insect that can carry a disease called Huanglongbing that causes citrus fruit to prematurely drop and is 100 percent fatal to citrus trees. The disease is difficult to diagnose because it can take years for infected trees to develop symptoms and looks like a nutritional deficiency.
