Jim Graham, soil microbiologist for the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, was recognized at the 73rd annual Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association (FFVA) convention for his years of service to the industry. Graham was named FFVA Researcher of the Year at the association’s award luncheon.

His recent research has led to some major discoveries on the adverse effects bicarbonates have on root health in HLB-infected trees. Graham worked with Brian Belcher from Davis Citrus Management on this research and developed management practices to acidify water and soil to reduce bicarbonates in the ground water and increase tree health and productivity.
