UF/IFAS’s Citrus Research and Education Center (CREC) website was revamped to make it easier for citrus growers to navigate.

Florida citrus growers have evidently had some complaints about the Citrus Research and Education Center (CREC) website, and CREC citrus team took action to remedy the issue, according to a Citrus Industry article. The website has been improved, making it easier to navigate and find information. See the details below.

Updated Citrus Research and Education Center Website

According to Michael Rogers, director of the CREC, as quoted in the article, citrus growers shared that “it’s really hard to find information on our website,” and that “you have to spend a lot of time trying to find things.”

The CREC cutrus team revamped the website to make it easier for visitors to navigate. Rogers said in the article, “There’s a lot of improvements and a lot more information there. It’s much more easy to navigate, and we’re encouraging everybody to have a look … We think that everybody’s going to find it a lot more user friendly.”

The new website now revolves around three main headings: Ongoing Research, Presentations and Resources. Visitors can access archived UF/IFAS research presentations, like those from the Citrus Expi, various guides about nutrition and other production practices, and citrus research conducted in UF/IFAS centers in Fort Pierce, Gainesville, Immokalee and Lake Alfred.
