Research Areas and Programs

The FDOC Scientific Research Department’s areas of interest and programs reflect both the technical expertise of our professional staff and the SRD capability to respond quickly to industry issues and problems. The SRD programs derive from the monitoring and oversight responsibility assigned to FDOC by Florida law. The SRD has many years of experience and analytical expertise to maintain multiple databases for citrus components and quality factors.
