Citrus Health Management Areas (CHMAs)

Citrus Health Management Areas

Creation of Citrus Health Management Areas (CHMAs) has been identified as a high priority for Florida citrus growers to slow the spread of citrus greening disease and preserve the current Florida commercial citrus acreage. The purpose of CHMAs is to encourage neighboring citrus growers to work together to combat citrus greening, particularly through the coordination of psyllid control efforts. The information found in the links below is provided to aid Florida citrus growers in establishing CHMAs in their areas.
