Quarantines called on citrus around Lodi, Manteca

The Record

Having found two Asian Citrus Psyllids, the California Department of Food and Agriculture on Monday called quarantines around Lodi and Manteca, banning the movement of citrus leaves or clippings.

The psyllid is known to transmit “huanglongbing,” a devastating disease of citrus trees transmitted to healthy trees from infected ones by the insect. The quarantine was ordered beginning Monday.

The quarantine around Lodi encompasses 95 square miles, including all of the city and surrounding rural area from Eight Mile Road to the south to Jahant Road to the north, from just west of Lockeford to the east to just east of Interstate 5 in the west. The map can be found online at http://pi.cdfa.ca.gov/pqm/manual/pdf/maps/3435ACPSanJoaquinLodi.pdf.

The quarantine around Manteca encompasses 105 square miles, and includes all of Manteca, parts of Lathrop, Ripon and French Camp, and a wide swath of rural land surrounding it. The map can be found online athttp://pi.cdfa.ca.gov/pqm/manual/pdf/maps/3435ACPSanJoaquinManteca.pdf.
