With the new year comes New Year’s resolutions to make improvements over the new year. In the UF/IFAS Tip of the Week in a Citrus Industry article. See the resolutions recommended for the Florida citrus industry below.

Florida Citrus Industry Resolutions

The following resolutions for the Florida citrus industry are taken from the UF/IFAS Tip of the Week article:

  1. “Listen to the All In For Citrus podcast. This monthly podcast is a quick and easy listen (30 minutes or less) and offers insights into what University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) researchers are working on. Hearing scientists explain their work is both informative and encouraging.
  2. Visit more often. This is a great site for news, presentations and all sorts of information from UF/IFAS research and education centers. It’s a one-stop shop for the latest news.
  3. Check out the UF/IFAS Extension citrus agents’ website. This is another great place for information, including earning continuing education units.
  4. Follow UF/IFAS citrus research and education centers on social media. The Citrus Research and Education Center, Indian River Research and Education Center and the Southwest Florida Research and Education Center all have Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. Chose any or all to follow and check in on them occasionally. Lots of great news, videos and even some fun facts are shared there.
  5. Sign up for the monthly UF/IFAS statewide citrus newsletter. It’s easy, and you can do it here.
  6. Be an advocate for citrus and share information about its many uses in addition to juice and fresh fruit.
  7. Say thank you more. It is a little phrase that carries a big impact. Acknowledging someone (especially staff members and fellow team members) for anything that they do — even just for showing up — can make a huge difference in someone’s day.
  8. Be positive. Together, we are moving forward in finding workable solutions to fight citrus greening. We are making progress.”
