Why Citrus Greening

The House of Yahweh monthly newsletter explains…

Isayah 24:1-6
1 Before Yahweh’s very Eyes, the earth is made empty and it is made waste; the face of it is perverted and its inhabitants scattered abroad;
2 And it will be: as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his owner; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with him who takes usury, so with him who gives usury to him:
3 The land will be utterly emptied and utterly plundered, for it has come to pass that this Judgment has been pronounced.
4 The earth mourns and fades away, the world mourns and fades away, and the haughty people of the earth languish.
5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants of it, because they have transgressed the Laws, changed the Ordinance, and broken the Everlasting Covenant.
6 Because of this, the curse has devoured the earth, and they who dwell therein are desolate; therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

An Incurable Disease Threatens To Destroy The Nation’s Orange Industry
Florida’s $9 billion orange crop, the largest in the world after Brazil’s, may not survive an incurable disease that threatens to wipe out citrus groves throughout the United States.
The disease, known as “citrus greening” or huanglongbing, is caused by a bacterium, Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus. The bacteria are spread from tree to tree by a tiny insect called the Asian citrus psyllid, The New York Times reports.
A tree affected by citrus greening may not show symptoms for years. Eventually, however, the leaves turn yellow and fall, while the tree’s fruit fails to mature, falling to the ground prematurely before the tree slowly dies.
“We have got a real big problem,” Vic Story, a lifelong Florida citrus grower, told The Times. “It’s definitely the biggest threat in my lifetime, and I’m 68. This is a tree killer.”
There is no known cure for citrus greening (which also affects grapefruit, lemons and other citrus crops), despite the best efforts of numerous research labs. The Candidatus bacteria is so devastating to citrus crops that it was classified as a bioterror weapon in 2003, The New Yorker reports.
“The industry that made Florida, that is synonymous with Florida, that is a staple on every American breakfast table, is totally threatened,” Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida told The Times. “If we don’t find a cure, it will eliminate the citrus industry.”

Remember the cause!!!

An industry under assault
Citrus greening isn’t the only problem threatening the state’s citrus industry, which employs more than 75,000 people. Rainfall in Florida this year has been 40 percent to 70 percent below the average of the past 30 years, Bloomberg reports.
Hurricanes, canker disease (another bacterial infection of citrus fruits), hard freezes and the vagaries of the international orange market, which Brazil dominates, have also battered Florida’s citrus industry.
