The UF/IFAS Citrus Research Website has undergone a revision to aid Florida citrus growers looking for the latest research.
The University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) has redesigned their Citrus Research Website to be more useful to Florida citrus growers, according to a UF/IFAS blog. Explore the changes and additions to this valuable resource for anyone in the Florida citrus industry.
Details of the Revamped UF/IFAS Citrus Research Website
According to the blog, the Citrus Research Website was completely revamped in order to improve navigation and to add new content like access to research trials, publications, and presentations. Michael Rogers, a professor and the director of the UF/IFAS Citrus Research and Education Center in Lake Alfred, said in the blog “We know growers are busy and don’t have time to search multiple sites for information. We put the most current research in one website where growers can search for and find what they need to be successful in today’s challenging growing situation.”
The blog maintained that the website contained:
- “Data from over 20 rootstock trials conducted by the UF/IFAS plant improvement team. Growers can review the data collected from the trials and compare data from sites across the state.”
- “UF/IFAS researchers share their ongoing research priorities in citrus economics, grove management, new varieties, nutrition/water management, psyllid management and root health.”
- “A resources section includes current production and nutrition guides and Extension documents (edis.ifas.ufl.edu) on citrus-related topics from 2016 to the present that are easily linked to from the website and are also presented by researcher for easy searching.”
