HERNANDEZ-LANDA, Lizbeth et al. Perception of the problem of Huanglongbing by relevant agents in urban areas. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.4, pp.993-1000. ISSN 2007-0934.

In Mexico, there are pests causing economic losses in citrus, one of them is Diaphorina citri, vector of the disease called Huanglongbing (HLB). Previous studies have measured different aspects in citrus producers, but the perception of relevant actors in urban areas, such as lemonade owners have not been evaluated. This study was carried out in 2013 in the city of Cuitlahuac, Veracruz and aimed to measure the information acquired on HLB from two groups: owners of lemon plants (Murraya paniculata) and executive staff of the citrus packing plants. It was found that a high proportion of managers of the packers are the ones who have more information, regarding the owners of lemon plants, on issues related to the national priority phytosanitary campaign against HLB such as: vector, disease transmission, as well as campaign messages on disease and vector control. Most of the interviewees in both groups were unaware that the lemongrass could be source of HLB inoculum as well as vector hosts. Dispite the diffusion campaigns, there is disinformation in relation to the problematic, particularly with respect to lemongrasss. The most outstanding is that the inhabitants are willing to remove these plants from their gardens or change them for others.
