Youíre welcome millet I could not stand by while my citrus were dying I just sprayed the psyllids today with spinosad. I have recovered four of my trees with the brassinolide and the nano zinc those are only a handful of the articles Iíve read . I chose the ones that were promising and tried them . The problem is that the brassinolide is not approved for commercial citrus , it was discovered in rape plant pollen in 1979 as I found out I have tried the organic brassinolide 14 epinbrassinolide 298.00$ a gram and the synthetic for a great deal cheaper 10.99$ for ten grams with no difference it takes 500 pounds of brassica pollen to make that one gram.  The chemically made one is 28 epinbrassinolide no difference. Iíve found tremendous growth in dwarf citrus and standard also in my mango trees and tremendous growth in dragon fruit. Iím just trying to tell people there are alternatives to taking out the trees and burning them  I will get a whole lot of lemons Meyer and ponderosa , and blood oranges this year and next Iíll let the Washington naval hold fruit the have grown back enough branches.

There is another simple and cheep chemical that is worth to try in combination with your Zn and brassinolide treatments. N-acetylcysteine  is being tested to treat Huanglongbin in Brazil and it is rather effective against a related bacteria Xyllela fastidiosa.

Good information. I am in favor of any/all help to find a soloution to the hlb situation. I am unsure that this treatment will be affordable to the home citrus grower. Perhaps the things that will work for the commercial growers will flow downhill to the backyard grower. Or.....will the only folks that can afford the "cure" be commercial growers....will citrus become so expensive that grass roots folks can not buy it? Lots of questions still to be answered....if they find a stop.

In case anyone like to read here is a list of plant hormones and what they do do not overdose a citrus tree it can cause a severe reaction most are available online experiment with seed grown citrus for example I use gibberellic acid with potassium and phosphorus with no nitrogen. To induce blooming in young citrus that normally take many years to flower I have gotten a pomello to flower and set fruit in its second year. With the process described

i looked it up it appears to work but much more expensive than the Brassinolide

Kumin, good post.  100 years of mono cropping, plus keeping Florida citrus grown bare of vegetation as taken its toll.  Your post make sense.
