Citrus Conversations are a video series of in-depth faculty discussions on current topics of interest.

By Michael E. Rogers

Were you unable to attend a recent University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) event and want to hear what you missed? Many past presentations are available online.

The UF/IFAS Citrus Research Website archives presentations made by UF/IFAS faculty at various meetings across the state. These can be found by scrolling down and selecting the “Presentations” drop-down tab to reveal the following options:

  • Research Update Presentations – These recorded presentations are given by UF/IFAS faculty at various workshops conducted by UF/IFAS Extension.
  • Citrus Conversations – These 20–45 minute videos are discussions with IFAS faculty that dig deeper into topics of interest which include CRISPR, trunk injection, plant growth regulators, etc.
  • Citrus Expo Presentations – Presentations are available going back to 2018. The majority of these are PDF files, not recordings.
  • Florida Citrus Growers’ Institute – Organized and hosted annually by the UF/IFAS multi-county citrus Extension agents, presentations are available back to 2019 as both recordings and PDF files.
  • Florida Citrus Show – Held annually in Fort Pierce, this year’s show takes place on April 3.

In addition to recorded presentations, the UF/IFAS Citrus Research Website also has links to selected Extension publications that are often available in print at UF/IFAS events. Links to these documents and other Extension resources can be found under the “Resources” drop-down tab, which provides the following options:

  • Plant Improvement/Breeding – Summaries of more than 60 UF/IFAS and U.S. Department of Agriculture citrus rootstock and scion trials are available here as well as the latest version of the Florida Citrus Rootstock Selection Guide.
  • Citrus Production Guide – Formerly known as the Florida Citrus Pest Management Guide, the annual Florida Citrus Production Guide has been expanded to include more horticultural practices that are crucial for managing citrus greening disease.
  • Citrus Nutrition Guide – The latest edition of Nutrition of Florida Citrus Trees includes updated recommendations for HLB-diseased trees.
  • Citrus Research Summary Booklet – Updated annually since 2021, this publication provides short summaries of more than 70 ongoing UF/IFAS citrus research projects.
