Proposed approach for assessing the value of CPDPD activities in Southern California

Tree Leaves

Since 2018, the Science Subcommittee has wrestled with how to determine whether Citrus Pest and Disease Prevention Division’s (CPDPD) regulatory activities are, or are not, supported by data, and how to judge if, when, or how activities should be restructured. Although DATOC has explored these questions via modeling projects, application of the results has been obfuscated by a lack of real-life control scenarios and the daunting complexity of both the model used and reality. We present here an alternative process that could be utilized to move the discussion forward.
