Pre-HLB Project

Frusoal 066

We are partners in the Pre-HLB project, which aims to avoid Huanglongbing (HLB) disease from entering Europe, and should it occur, to prepare the necessary mechanisms to effectively control it in the short, medium and long term, minimising its threat to citrus-growing worldwide. We support the implementation of various control measures and make our technical team and our cultivation areas available. The Pre-HLB project is composed of a multi-disciplinary consortium led by IBMCP (CSICUPV – Spain) and has the support of universities, research centres and other entities in Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom, France, Brazil, Italy, the Netherlands, China and Israel.
