Life Vida for Citrus

…seeks to develop a tool for rapid detection of the disease, which would greatly facilitate its control

1

Contribute to the early diagnosis of HLB by developing a marketable early detection kit.

2

Try new pathogen-resistant and heat-tolerant rootstocks that can be adapted to Mediterranean citrus production and thus increase plant resilience.

3

Demonstrate effective techniques to control the propagation of vectors

4

Increase the defense of the ecosystem with sustainable agricultural practices, while providing other environmental benefits.

5

Promote international cooperation and involve the outermost regions of the EU to prevent the entry of HLB and contain the spread.

6

Create a replicable model of agricultural practices for the prevention of vectors / diseases
