Citrus coalition urges growers to vote against ‘box tax’

Growers are demanding accountability for $180 million spent on research that hasn’t found a solution to citrus greening, Center Square Florida reports.

“Florida citrus growers are pushing back against a tax they’ve been paying to fund research they argue hasn’t, and doesn’t, benefit them. Over many years and $180 million later, research to reduce or eradicate citrus greening has done neither, they argue,” according to the article.
