The productivity of citrus in Nepal is not increasing in the same proportion as that of the area and one of the reasons for this is citrus decline. The citrus decline is not a specific disease but a symptomatic expression of many disorders in plants. This disorder is activated by both biotic and abiotic factors where the symptoms vary with the causes and the factors involved. The Government of Nepal has made different plans not only for the commercialization of citriculture but also for combating citrus decline. However, the history depicts the implementation phase always going weak. Other weaknesses lie in the production system and the cultural practices that are followed by the majority of Nepalese farmers. Therefore, improvement in both the production technologies and cultural practices is imminent for protecting the entire orchard from declining. Right from the seed production until the marketing of the final products, proper attention should be paid in every possible step. This paper discusses the production status of citrus and explores the options for rejuvenation of declined orchards where the data are collected via different sources.
