Biosecurity

The Biosecurity Division in CRI has as its core the responsibility to protect the citrus industry from an ever increasing threat from invasive pests and diseases due to global trends in the movement of people and goods in international trade, and the impact of climate change shifting the dynamics of pests and diseases establishing and spreading into new regions. A Biosecurity Manager post was created within CRI to help protect the citrus industry from new pests and diseases.  This post was filled by Dr. Solomon Gebeyehu. A Biosecurity Operations Coordinator position has been filled by Wayne Kirkman.
