The Citrus Research Board is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

Special report: Citrus Research Board turns 50

Package of stories highlights how research and collaboration have made a crucial contribution to industry's resilience.

Research has made a crucial contribution to the resilience of the citrus industry in California's Central Valley, helping to do everything from developing new varieties to preparing for the inevitable arrival of the deadly tree disease huanglongbing. Collaboration between growers, the University of California and other entities have also buoyed the industry's success.

In the past week, Western Farm Press has published a series of articles centered around the 50th anniversary of the entity that is responsible for a big portion of this research -- the grower-funded Citrus Research Board.

If you've missed all or part of the series, here is what we've done.
