University of Florida researcher Bob Rouse has been doing studies on the so-called “Boyd cocktail” of nutrients and other products that has kept grower Maury Boyd’s HLB-infected trees alive for years. In the first of these reports, Rouse says researchers are pretty certain it’s the nutrients, and not other products in the cocktail, that are keeping trees alive.
