In an important breakthrough, our Citrus Nutritional and Greening Treatment programs are achieving remarkable documented results. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) recently tested one of the Citrus groves in central Florida following our nutritional program. The following letter from from Greg Hodges, Assistant Director of FDACS reports the positive results from the testing [letter dated March 7, 2017].
I got your voicemail message from yesterday………………. Our lab did indicate that the leaf samples from the Kelly Citrus LLC grove did still have Ct values that indicate the presence of citrus greening (HLB or Huanglongbing). Our head of our plant pathology section (Dr. Sun) also indicated that in general the average Ct value of an HLB infected citrus tree in Florida usually runs between 25 and 27. The average Ct value that we saw from Kelly Citrus was 30.33, which would indicate lower titers of the HLB pathogen. Our sample size is low, so we cannot definitively determine why the titers are lower. Working with some of the scientists at University of Florida SWREC on a larger more robust trial and sampling regime could paint a more a thorough picture. If you can gather data indicating increase in box count and having some rows (or some trees) that do not receive treatments for comparison will also be a good thing to illustrate.
I have attached the sample results from our lab in the form of the attached spreadsheet. Please let me know if you need additional information,
