9:30 am Welcome, Introductions, and Overview of Discussion Agenda
- Jacque Fletcher, Committee Chair

At this forum, Florida citrus growers will discuss the cultural practices they currently employ in their groves to keep HLB-infected trees productive. The growers were asked to address the following questions:

- Can you describe how you are taking care of HLB-infected trees? About how much yield increase (if any) have you seen since employing your current practices?
- Are you also spraying for ACP/participating in a CHMA?
- How much of your current grove practices are based on research results generated by the HLB research community?
- What current HLB management strategies that resulted from HLB research community are you employing in your groves and why did you choose to employ them?
