The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and Southeast AgNet are partnering to provide the latest news on citrus-related research in a monthly podcast.

The podcast, “All in for Citrus,” features short interviews with scientists working to find solutions to citrus greening and other devastating citrus diseases.

“This is the latest tactic in a comprehensive communications effort launched this past summer by the UF/IFAS Citrus Team,” said Michael Rogers, statewide citrus research coordinator and director of the UF/IFAS Citrus Research and Education Center in Lake Alfred, Florida.

The podcast complements the new website, citrusresearch.ifas.ufl.edu, and a new monthly newsletter, both launched at the August Citrus Expo held in Fort Myers, Florida.

“We are working hard to get the latest research findings directly to growers in a timelier manner,” said Rogers. “We are also streamlining the research results to focus on what growers could use immediately in their groves or what might be a longer-term strategy.”
