This photo shows the malformed citrus fruit that can result from greening. It looks like the photo itself has been distorted, but this is what the camera shot (with several tweaks in Adobe Bridge for contrast, saturation and sharpening). This fruit would never be accepted by a packer, so it will either fall to the ground before harvest or will be culled out at the packing house.
citrus research. We’ve been in Florida for three generations. The idea behind this blog is to tell the Florida citrus story straight from the field in a visual way. I also have a web development firm. Be sure to also check out Panotracks, my professional photography portfolio. I also developed one of the most widely used citrus management field apps using artificial intelligence and handheld PDA devices. Some of the other websites I've designed or developed include Indian River Citrus League, Florida Department of Citrus, and Blue Goose Growers.
