LDAF Updates Citrus Quarantine Areas and Requirements
March 15, 2017
Citrus canker (Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri) – The following parishes are quarantined for Citrus Canker: Jefferson, Lafourche, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. James and St. John.
Citrus greening (Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus) – The following parishes are quarantined for Citrus Greening: Jefferson, Orleans and Washington.
Asian Citrus Psyllid (Diaphorina citri Kuwayama) – The following parishes are quarantined for Asian Citrus Psyllid: Jefferson, Orleans, Lafourche, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. James, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, and Terrebonne.
In order to reduce the risk of citrus nursery stock being moved from a quarantined area, the LDAF has added a new labeling regulation. Any citrus nursery stock that is sold or moved into a parish that is quarantined must have a label attached to the plant or container with the following statement: PROHIBITED FROM MOVEMENT OUTSIDE OF THE CITRUS QUARANTINE AREAS Penalty for Violation, Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry. (The labeling requirement is only for the Citrus Canker and Citrus Greening Quarantines. It is not required for the Asian Citrus Psyllid Quarantine) To avoid confusion with the citrus quarantines, a good rule thumb is to purchase citrus nursery stock from the parish in which you plan to grow it.
