Researchers, farmers, and government agencies say they're making progress in the fight against citrus disease.

The California Department of Food and Agriculture says it's constantly monitoring for citrus greening -- a disease carried by the Asian citrus psyllid.

So far, there is no cure for the disease, but officials say there is research underway showing promise of detecting and fighting it.
