    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.

    Economic and Financial Comparison of Organic and Conventional Citrus-growing Systems
    Study prepared for the Horticultural Products Group, Raw Materials, Tropical and Horticultural Products Service, Commodities and Trade Division, FAO
    2001
    Also available in:

    This study was conducted for two citrus crops (oranges and mandarins) in the Valencia region, Spain, in the year 2000. The results obtained were of course determined by the agro-ecological and socio-economic context of this country during that period. Consequently, they cannot be used to draw general conclusions on the comparative profitability of organic and conventional farming. Also, one should be cautious when trying to replicate the results in other geographical areas or in other commoditie s without taking into account the inevitable differences in contexts. However, the methodology presented in this paper is one that can be useful to carry out comparative analyses for citrus as well as other crops in other countries.
