Parish hosts Citrus Media Day

Plaquemines Parish hosted a media day at the Saxon Becnel and Sons Citrus Nursery on Monday, May 5, to highlight the recent efforts of local citrus farmers in combating the spread of citrus canker to the commercial crops of Plaquemines Parish. The canker has been located 9.5 miles from the Saxon Becnel and Sons Citrus Nursery, but if the canker would come anywhere near the nursery they could conduct business as usual thanks to their new developments and technology.
