Evaluating buffer treatments in the context of refusal rates
At the April Operations Subcommittee meeting, it was requested that DATOC review available data to determine what could be gleaned from the information with regards to program efficiency and/or how buffer treatments are being done.
Time series analysis of ACP
The presence of ACP in California has been tracked by various programs and projects for several years. This analysis will construct a time series for various California regions since the start of these activities.
The CDFA recently implemented a pilot program which will allow citrus growers to utilize grates as an alternative mitigation strategy for disinfesting loads of bulk citrus. DATOC is analyzing the results of this program to help inform a recommended sampling plan if the grate systems are adopted on a wider scale.
These projects undergo regular updates as the epidemic in Southern California develops.
