Sixty‐two citrus rootstock and scion breeders, university administrators, citrus industry representatives, federal government officials and citrus research funding agency representatives met in Denver, Colorado to discuss barriers and find solutions to achieve more effective coordination and collaboration among citrus breeder scientists working on huanglongbing (HLB) mitigation. Participants identified four major areas of barriers based on the whole group’s discussion of the pre‐workshop survey: 1) Scientific Barriers, 2) Regulatory Barriers, 3) Intellectual Property and Tech Transfer Barriers and 4) Funder‐related Barriers. This final report outlines their findings and next steps to achieve more effective coordination and collaboration among citrus breeder scientists working on HLB mitigation.
