EXTENSION

Fruit & Nut Crops

Fruit and Nut crops and potential new orchard crops for North Florida, has attracted visitors from the Suwannee Valley area to the NFREC-farm. Extension programs on fruit and nut topics have been developed based on those crops and topics that seem to be popular at a certain point of time and have been targeted at different audiences such as Homeowners, Master Gardeners and Commercial Growers. Specialists, Extension Agents, NFREC-SV staff and Master Gardener coordinators have taken part on taking the lead on these events. Providing updated information about economics (See North Florida Enterprise Budgets), pests and disease, irrigation and nutrient management, any reported issues or successful stories about a specific crop has always been part of these programs.
