Florida citrus trees weakened by disease are affected by the current moderate drought conditions in the middle of the state. Fruit and leaf drop, and certain insect injuries can also be exacerbated by dry conditions. The way in which drought stresses weak citrus trees causes their leaves to wilt slightly and curl inward. There is still time for the trees to recover from the dry weather if rain occurs or adequate irrigation is provided.
