A quarantine has been declared following the detection of the citrus disease Huanglongbing (HLB), or citrus greening, in multiple residential citrus trees within the City of Corona, Riverside County. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Riverside County, Orange County, and San Bernardino County agricultural commissioners, and the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) are working collaboratively on this project.
The 107-square mile quarantine area will link up with the east side of the existing quarantine in Los Angeles, Riverside, Orange, and San Bernardino counties, creating a contiguous 1,127-square-mile area. The new portion is bordered on the north by Chino Airport, on the south by Black Star Canyon, and on the east by Interstate 15. HLB quarantine maps are available online at: https://www.cdfa.ca.gov/plant/hlb/regulation.html.
It is my privilege to submit the 2018 Riverside County Agricultural Production Report. This report is produced in
accordance with Section 2279 of the California Food and Agricultural Code, and summarizes the acreage,
production and valuation of our County’s agricultural commodities.
The Private Applicator Certification (PAC) examination is available in both English and Spanish. The only part of the Spanish examination written in English is the pesticide label. Federal law requires all certified applicators to be able to read and understand the registered labeling. In the United States most pesticide labels are only written in English.
