When people think Florida, they think of citrus. Whether you have lived in Florida for many years or recently began calling Florida your home, you have probably heard about the Florida citrus industry. Citrus brings billions of dollars to our state every year and covers our landscape. The beauty and smell of citrus is unique and is enjoyable by Florida residents and visitors.

With the beauty of citrus comes struggles that we continually monitor and manage to keep citrus the number one crop for our state. This pests and diseases show no boundaries throughout Florida and managing these issues is a top priority. Not only do we have pest and disease issues, we have general tree care which includes selecting the variety to grow, how to plant it, where to plant it and so much more.

This webpage is dedicated to providing homeowners information on caring for their citrus trees. There are presentations that will be updated in the fall annually that cover pest and disease identification and management, general tree care, and a brief historical and economic overview of Florida citrus.
