Louisiana Commercial Grower Updates
4/14/2020: USDA-APHIS authorized the importation of fresh citrus fruit from China. Public notice of this directive is available here: https://s3.amazonaws.com/public-inspection.federalregister.gov/2020-08059.pdf This will directly impact the fresh citrus market throughout the US. Growers should direct their questions and concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4/21/2020: From the Louisiana Nursery and Landscape Association (LNLA):
Here is a helpful video we have put together for you! https://youtu.be/pcKV8ISevfg
We are many rules and regulations in our citrus industry in place to combat the spread of diseases. I wanted to share with you all a personal sanitizing station we have had on our nursery for some time now and during this Covid-19 pandemic have found it to be all the more useful in protecting ourselves and our employees.
There are many products on the market that are available to us to use but these are the ones we use.
The motor that I mention in the video is available on amazon. EZ Travel Collection Electric Water Pump Continuous Industrial Duty (1/2 HP Motor) by RVTravelMats

This is a pretty easy set up that could be built on your facility or possibly a traveling unit. Our intent of this information is solely to share and help!
Thank you all and God Bless,
