UF/IFAS Faculty to Use $141M in Research Funding to Improve Corn, Manage Citrus Greening and Suppress Mosquito-Borne Diseases

Scientists at UF/IFAS are using 2020’s allotment of $141 million in research funding to develop better sweet corn, improve cow-calf breeding, make further progress toward controlling citrus greening disease, and more.

Robert Gilbert, dean of UF/IFAS Research and director of the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station, gleaned information from major grants from fiscal year 2019-2020 and sees many bright spots.

“These grants illustrate the tremendous breadth and depth of UF/IFAS programs,” Gilbert said. “Our faculty are doing cutting-edge basic research and applying the results to make a tremendous impact in the lives of citizens of Florida, the nation and the world.”
