UF/IFAS to help citrus industry in Hurricane Irma recovery

Researchers and Extension faculty with UF/IFAS say they will help citrus growers as the weeks and months progress after they fully assess the damage from Hurricane Irma.

“They are all in clean-up mode at this time,” said Michael Rogers, director of the UF/IFAS Citrus Research and Education Center. I think down the road, we will be providing guidance on practices to help rehabilitate groves to improve the health and help trees recover more quickly from this damage. We need to get these stressed trees back to health as soon as possible so we don’t lose more trees and fruit next season.”
