IX. Reported Host Range:

X. citri appears to be pathogenic to all cultivated species of Rutaceae, at least when artificially inoculated [1,10]. The natural host range of X. campestris pv. aurantifolii strains may be more limited than that of X. citri, but this may be a matter of degree of disease severity, due to differences in virulence, infection efficiency, and/or dissemination abilities of these two different xanthomonads.

In artificial inoculations, at least some strains (pathotype B) of X. campestris pv. aurantifolii appear to have the same potential host range as X. citri. Race-specific avirulence may account for the host range differences between pathotypes B and C of X. campestris pv. aurantifolii.

Southern Gardens Citrus announces field trials of genetically modified citrus carrying an IPG DiseaseBlock® gene for resistance to citrus greening

Citrus "Greening" or "Huanglongbing" disease spreads well beyond Florida to now threaten California.

In 2005, 75% of the cotton, almost 50% the corn, and 85% of the soybeans planted in the U.S. were biotech-enhanced
