Jim Snively, VP Grove Operations, Southern Gardens CitrusIn our continuing series on the recent HLB Research Conference, AgNet’s Ernie Neff catches up to Southern Gardens Citrus VP of Grove Operations, Jim Snively for comments. Southern Gardens, a division of U S Sugar Corp., has been a leader in citrus “greening” research since the start of the problem in Florida. As far as the present status of advice from the scientific community globally, Snively says he’s encouraged the advice at this time seems to be consistent.
