Below are a few helpful links:
 
This is a link to a publication that is out of print.  It may be helpful when trying to determine citrus varieties.  The link is as  follows: http://citrusagents.ifas.ufl.edu/agents/futch/PDF/Fla%20Citrus%20Varieties.pdf
Note from the Event Coordinator:  Anyone needing copies of SP176, “Identification of mites, insects, diseases, nutritional symptoms and disorders on citrus”,  the UF/IFAS publication department has the old version at a reduced price of $4 each. The list price was previously $12. A few items were added to the new version but for the difference in price the old version should still provide value.  You are encouraged to place order by phone rather than online.  To contact the IFAS Bookstore, please call:  352-392-1764 or 800-226-1764.
