in cooperation with the Agricultural Extension Service of the University of Florida,
the Citrus Experiment Station, the U. S. Dept. of Agriculture, and Industry Leaders.
The member-owned cooperative makes loans to grower-members for annual pro- Whitmore
duction needs. In addition the increasingly popular intermediate-term loan for cap-
ital improvement purposes is being made, by which repayment can be extended over

FLORIDA CITRUS RESEARCH FOUNDATION

The purpose of this newly formed Foundation is to promote the improvement of citrus varieties. In this effort
it is acquiring and will own a large tract of land in Lake County on which an expanded research program will
be carried out by the U. S. Department of Agriculture for the benefit of the citrus industry.

The research to be conducted on this land includes: 1. A large breeding program for the development of new
and improved citrus varieties directed toward early-maturing, high-solids oranges to spread our marketing
and processing season; early, improved grapefruit of good size; new "kid glove" mandarins to expand the mar-
ket for tangerine-like fruits; and new exotic fruits such as the tangelos which will compete in the fresh fruit
channels to better advantage than our present limited varieties. An extensive citrus breeding program has great
potentials never before adequately explored due to lack of sufficient land and facilities. 2. Comparative orchard
tests of various strains of existing varieties, including the nucellar lines, in order to make available propaga-
ting material of the strains which are best in production and fruit quality. 3. The establishment and enlargement
in a permanent location of the Department's very extensive citrus collection which includes species, varieties,
hybrids, and citrus relatives from all over the citrus world. This collection provides the backbone for the breed-
ing and rootstock research and also is a source of citrus seeds and propagating material for growers and exper-
iment stations. 4. Tests of the different varieties and strains as to productivity, disease and cold resistance,
and adaptability on different rootstocks and under various soil and moisture conditions.

All of these research objectives can be accomplished and will mean much to the future of the citrus industry if
you contribute your financial support now to the Florida Citrus Research Foundation.
