The purpose of this chapter is to:
(1) establish a certified citrus budwood program to produce citrus trees that are horticulturally sound, are free from virus and other recognizable bud-transmissible diseases, and are of an assured type of citrus variety;
(2) establish a certified citrus nursery program for citrus nursery stock sold in the citrus zone as part of an effort to produce citrus trees that are free from pathogens, including citrus greening disease, which is spread by the Asian citrus psyllid;
(3) provide standards for foundation groves, certified citrus nurseries, and certified citrus nursery trees; and
(4) provide for an advisory council to make recommendations on the implementation of the programs.
