The faculty here in the Horticultural Sciences Department at the University of Florida are a dynamic and productive group. The faculty consists of twenty-eight faculty in Gainesville and twenty-eight more in relevant production areas Statewide. This concentration in Gainesville and dispersal throughout the state provides a strong connection between basic and applied science.
This blog was started because discoveries, publications and distinguished recognition in the field are frequent, cutting edge, and yielding substantial impact. A standard website does not accurately convey the stream of scientific excellence achieved here everyday.
As you read the blog you’ll observe that all of our programs are united by a common thread of relevance. Relevance to basic science, relevance to its application, relevance to teaching and relevance to horticultural crop production statewide.
We hope you take the time to peruse this blog and discover short reviews of spotlighted research, teaching and extension activities of the Horticultural Sciences Department.
