Performance of ‘Valencia’ Orange (Citrus sinensis [L.] Osbeck) on 17 Rootstocks in a Trial Severely Affected by Huanglongbing
‘Valencia’ orange (Citrus sinensis [L.] Osbeck) was grown on 17 rootstocks through seven years of age and the first four harvest seasons in a central Florida field trial severely affected by huanglongbing (HLB) disease.
