2019-2020 Citrus Production Guide

2021-2022 Florida Citrus Production Guide

The production guide is a collection of the latest UF/IFAS knowledge and recommendations to manage not only HLB but the other issues that can affect citrus production here in Florida. Every day UF/IFAS scientists are at work in the lab or field where we learn something new that can be added to our knowledge on how to live with HLB. So, as new information is developed, this guide is updated and provided annually to keep you up to date on the latest science-based information you can put to use in your groves. 

2020 Citrus Nutrition Guide

2020 Citrus Nutrition Guide

Nutrition of Florida Citrus Trees, 3rd Edition is an update of UF/IFAS Bulletin SP169, which provided guidelines for Florida citrus fertilization since 1995. The objective of the original edition was to provide background information and recommendations to develop a sound citrus nutrition program that optimizes financial returns while sustaining yields and maintaining soil and water quality. The second edition maintained that objective as it incorporated the findings of numerous citrus nutrition research projects conducted since the mid-1990s.

This  edition has updated literature review articles, 3 new rootstocks(US Super Sours 1, 2 and 3), updated info about the UFR Series in the Rootstock Data Table, additional authors and contributors, and a new section with the History of the FLCRSG.

Plant Improvement Rootstock Field Data

Plant Improvement

The Plant Improvement field effort involves about 60 trials that are mostly conducted in cooperation with citrus growers, on their property and under their management, in locations throughout the State of Florida. The trials vary in age and design but overall are intended to focus on certain horticultural traits [tree size, yield and juice and fruit quality] and tolerance to greening disease or Huanglongbing [HLB]. Data are collected and the website is updated annually. Trials are continuously posted to the website throughout the year.
