Fundecitrus - Fund for Citrus Plant Protection, is an association of citrus producers and processors, whose object is plant sanitary defense.In addition to acting in monitoring activities, it aids the State Agriculture Department in the citrus canker eradication and performs and finances scientific research to discover forms to control and handle diseases and pests that affect citrus plantations.
Fundecitrus' first action was in 1977, assisting the National Campaign to Eradicate Citrus Canker (CANECC) of the Ministry of Agriculture. Identified in Brazil in 1957, in the Presidente Prudente (SP) region, the disease spread in the State of Sao Paulo citriculture region during 1979.
In 1984, to contain the disease's spreading of what at that time was considered the largest threat to Brazilian citriculture, Fundecitrus created the State Campaign to Prevent Citrus Canker (CEPRECC). With its own team of agronomists, it began to provide guidelines and instructions to producers on how to prevent the disease. In 1992, accredited by the Ministry of Agriculture, it assumed all the responsibilities to prevent and inspect citrus canker in São Paulo. In 1994, it was authorized to extend its operations to the South of the Triângulo Mineiro region, in the State of Minas Gerais.
