Florida Citrus Root Health

Healthy Florida citrus close up

Maintaining Healthy Roots

Not all risks to yield are easy to spot – some exist below the surface. Root health is essential to overall crop health. Without it, plants are more susceptible to stress factors, such as cold spells, drought and disease.

Nematodes are an added stressor affecting root health. Citrus groves infested with these tiny, root-feeding roundworms are especially vulnerable to the effects of Huanglongbing (HLB).

Florida growers can take measures to protect citrus root health and preserve yields. Proper planning, consistent applications and vigilant monitoring can ensure healthier trees and more marketable crops.
