Special Research Grants Program - Citrus tristeza Research: The purpose of this program is to support cutting edge research that mitigates or eliminates problems caused by the Citrus tristeza virus and/or the Brown Citrus Aphid. Research using the latest technologies in new ways is encouraged. Priority will be given to applications that propose collaboration between citrus production areas, and to proposed projects that are judged most likely to result in positive short-term impacts on citrus production. Citrus tristeza is a viral pathogen of citrus vectored by several aphid species. This disease has been found in all citrus producing regions in the United States. The pathogen is of world-wide importance. Depending on viral strain, citrus plants will exhibit a variety of symptoms from mild to severe depending on the host and the environment. A new aphid vector, the Brown Citrus Aphid, has been introduced into Florida. This insect is capable of vectoring the stem-pitting strain of Citrus tristeza, which is the most severe strain.
