Video – CDFA’s plant and pest scientists at work

At CDFA’s Plant Pest Diagnostics lab in South Sacramento, scientists work long hours identifying invasive species–pests and diseases–that threaten California’s environment and food supply. Examples of these would be exotic fruit flies as well as the Asian citrus psyllid and the disease it carries, huanglongbing, or citrus greening. This video produced by the California Association of Professional Scientists examines some of that work and takes us in some interesting and unexpected directions.
