You may have seen previous reports on this blog and in the news about the early bloom in Florida citrus trees this year. In some groves, bloom started as early as the middle to end of January. A lot of people think this is due at least in part to some of the unprecedented disease issues in the state now. As shown in this iPhone photo, however, some trees are just now coming into full bloom. It’s hard to fully explain the never-before-seen horticultural behavior of the trees this year. Let’s hope that this year is an anamoly, and next year will be much more normal.
citrus research. We’ve been in Florida for three generations. The idea behind this blog is to tell the Florida citrus story straight from the field in a visual way. I also have a web development firm. Be sure to also check out Panotracks, my professional photography portfolio. I also developed one of the most widely used citrus management field apps using artificial intelligence and handheld PDA devices. Some of the other websites I've designed or developed include Indian River Citrus League, Florida Department of Citrus, and Blue Goose Growers.
