Welcome to the Citrus Research & Education Center


For the past 100 years, the University of Florida (UF) Citrus Research and Education Center (CREC) has been honored to assist the citrus industry in meeting its developmental needs through its Research, Extension, and Teaching programs. CREC is the oldest and largest off-campus experiment station in UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) and is unique among research centers in that it focuses entirely on one commodity, citrus.

CREC discovers and delivers innovative solutions that empower citrus and other agricultural interests to conduct responsible and profitable business. CREC fosters scientific excellence and efficient use of resources.
