If I can find the materials I will post on here for reference for those interested in knowing how to id vs other symptoms such as the tree being deficient of one or more elements.

I didn't realize that genetically modified orange's, especially when it come's to making juice, had such a big perception problem. Personally, i don't have any problem with that, but i guess the public does. But if they can't figure how to stop this citrus greening, that's the way it's going to go.
