SALT o' the EARTH

Would you like to have a stake in the purchase and
operation of a unique citrus research project? The op-
portunity is here---you can make a contribution to the
Florida Citrus Research Foundation by sending a check
to the Foundation at Box 499, Lakeland. Contributions
to the Foundation are tax deductible.
Here's one of the main reasons for the Foundation:
Improving the internal quality of citrus fruits together
with practices that maintain high per acre fruit yields
have always been a primary concern of the citrus re-
search investigators of the U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture, the State Citrus Experiment Station, and private
research groups in the state. Some outstanding work
in plant nutrition has been done by Florida scientists
in the past two decades. Although they are still not in
possession of all of the facts regarding the nutritional
requirements of the citrus plant, so thorough and efec-
tive has been their work that it seems now that the best
opportunity for improvement in the internal quality of
citrus fruit lies in the fields of genetics and scientific
citrus plant breeding. Although citrus plant breeding
is a relatively slow process, it offers the scientists
considerable opportunity to breed into new scion and
rootstock varieties a number of "built-in" features
that are highly desired by citrus growers and the con-
sumer.
The citrus industry, the most advanced agricul-
tural enterprise in existence, is probably the furthest
behind in breeding work designed to develop new and
improved varieties. Research investigations at the
Florida Citrus Foundation grove in Lake County will
have the development of new and improved varieties of
citrus fruits and citrus fruit rootstocks as one of their
primary objectives. Already the U.S.D.A. has initial
plantings at the grove.
The Citrus Research Foundation grove is unique in
that it is an industry-owned 500-acre tract of land upon
which the government is carrying out research which is
needed by the citrus industry, and which the industry
has requested. It is a cooperative arrangement. The
land and facilities will remain in the title of the Re-
search Foundation and the scientific investigations will
be made by the U. S. D.A. Something over $100, 000 is
still to be provided. Your help is needed to put over
this project which will surely be of untold value to the
Florida citrus industry.
