Amir Rezazadeh discusses his role as the new multi-county citrus Extension agent for the Indian River production region.

“I really want the growers to know that I’m here to support them,” says Rezazadeh, who has experience working in production. In addition to helping growers deal with greening disease, he says he wants to “introduce … new, high-value alternative crops” to the region. 

“If we cannot combat citrus greening, we can start producing some other crops” that are economically feasible in the Indian River area, he says.

Rezazadeh says he wants to “transfer all of my knowledge to the growers here in Florida to help them to find a solution” to greening, and “to produce the high quality of fruit here in Florida.”

Rezazadeh discussed his new role during an interview with AgNet Media’s Abbey Taylor. The interview is part of the latest episode of the All in for Citrus podcast. Listen to the full podcast here.
