    To achieve a successful graft, it is important to have healthy, actively growing rootstocks, as well as scions with active (swollen) buds that have not yet opened. Normally, scions and rootstocks should be of the same diameter, in order to align cambium layers. This is required for the formation of the graft union, to allow the effective movement of the nutrients and water needed for plant growth between roots and shoots.

    The citrus industry is very important to the economy of Belize in terms of employment, livelihood of rural communities, exports and local production. Since May 2009, the industry has been under threat of devastation from Huanglongbing (HLB), formerly known as Citrus Greening Disease. In response to the outbreak, industry stakeholders including growers, government and processors have undertaken a national response to reduce the incidence and spread of the disease, which is vectored by an insect c alled the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), Diaphorina citri. All citrus varieties are susceptible to HLB and there is currently no known cure for the disease. Management of the disease (via reduced incidence of the vector and improved plant health) is the only viable option to mitigate the impact of HLB on the production and productivity of the groves.
