We are past the final stage of testing. Now we will work as requested with trade professionals or commercial growers to design and adapt systems for their particular application using the Modular Tree Injector. A smaller injector for citrus trees is in the testing stages.
I have an avocado grove in Homestead Florida. Laurel Wilt disease arrived about 3 years ago to our area. As a grower I got very involved researching ways to save my trees. The basic response to Laurel wilt is to remove infected trees and inject propiconazole in to the trees as a prevention or as a reaction to infestation in a grove. There are good arguments for being proactive, before you get an episode, and there are good arguments for being reactive. I'm in the reactive mode at the moment. What we know today is that the option of doing nothing is a poor one. The picture on the left shows a grove in which nothing was done. The decease moves quickly via beetle boring of the wood and also via root graft transmission. During the wet and hot summer this root transmission occurs very fast.
