The University of Florida's Gulf Coast Research and Education Center in Bradenton
was established in 1925 as a tomato disease laboratory. A tomato cultivar
development program soon was initiated when it became apparent that it was
essential to develop and select cultivars adapted to Florida's subtropical
environment for the fledgling industry to survive and to flourish. Other
vegetables were not ignored and breeding programs on pole beans, peppers, and
muskmelons resulted in the release of several high yielding cultivars. In the
late 1940's, a gladiolus breeding program was started and aimed at the
development of disease-resistant cultivars that were horticulturally adaptable
and productive. As other ornamental crops became commercially important, a full
time flower breeder was added to the faculty in 1969. The flower breeding
program was expanded further to include caladium, gypsophila, lisianthus, orchid,
and poinsettia.

The strawberry laboratory in Dover, where strawberry seedlings had been evaluated
and selected since 1932, became a part of the Gulf Coast Research and Education
Center in 1963. A formal strawberry breeding program was started in 1969 and was
conducted by a plant pathologist. The breeding program was expanded further the
summer of 1987 with the employment of a geneticist-breeder charged with the
development of high yielding, disease-resistant strawberry cultivars.

The Gulf Coast Research and Education Center has brought together over the years
a group of scientists from diverse disciplines who, via innovative,
interdisciplinary research, have developed many high yielding, disease-resistant
cultivars resulting in the advancement of the vegetable, strawberry, and flower
industries of the state.

Outlined on the following pages is a list of cultivars released from these
programs.


'Professor of Plant Pathology and Professor of Environmental Horticulture and
Center Director, respectively.

The Gulf Coast Research and Education Center


The Gulf Coast Research and Education Center is
a unit of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences, University of Florida. The Research Center
originated in the fall of 1925 as the Tomato
Disease Laboratory with the primary objective of
developing control procedures for an epidemic out-
break of nailhead spot of tomato. Research was ex-
panded in subsequent years to include study of sev-
eral other tomato diseases.

In 1937, new research facilities were established
in the town of Manatee, and the Center scope was
enlarged to include horticultural, entomological, and
soil science studies of several vegetable crops. The
ornamental program was a natural addition to the
Center's responsibilities because of the emerging in-
dustry in the area in the early 1940's.

The Center's current location was established in
1965 where a comprehensive research and extension
program on vegetable crops and ornamental plants is
conducted. Three state extension specialists posi-
tions, 16 state research scientists, and two grant
supported scientists from various disciplines of
training participate in all phases of vegetable and
ornamental horticultural programs. This interdisci-
plinary team approach, combining several research
disciplines and a wide range of industry and faculty
contacts, often is more productive than could be ac-
complished with limited investments in independent
programs.


The Center's primary mission is to develop new
and expand existing knowledge and technology, and
to disseminate new scientific knowledge in Florida, so
that agriculture remains efficient and economically
sound.

The secondary mission of the Center is to assist
the Cooperative Extension Service, IFAS campus
departments, in which Center faculty hold appropri-
ate liaison appointments, and other research centers
in extension, educational training, and cooperative
research programs for the benefit of Florida's pro-
ducers, students, and citizens.

Program areas of emphasis include: (1) genetics,
breeding, and variety development and evaluation;
(2) biological, chemical, and mechanical pest manage-
ment in entomology, plant pathology, nematology,
bacteriology, virology, and weed science; (3) produc-
tion efficiency, culture, management, and counteract-
ing environmental stress; (4) water management and
natural resource protection; (5) post-harvest physiol-
ogy, harvesting, handling and food quality of horti-
cultural crops; (6) technical support and assistance to
the Florida Cooperative Extension Service; and (7)
advancement offundamental knowledge ofdisciplines
represented by faculty and (8) directing graduate
student training and teaching special undergraduate
classes.
