Diaprepes Task

Force Meeting

The Diaprepes Task Force
Annual Scientific Meeting was
held at the USDA-ARS facility
in Ft. Pierce on March 4.
The Diaprepes root weevil is
a devastating pest of citrus and
other crops, including several
ornamentals. It is found
throughout Florida's citrus
growing areas.
The Diaprepes Task Force,
chaired by Bartow citrus grower
Garvie Hall, includes citrus
growers, scientists and regula-
tory personnel. Formed in 1993,
largely due to the efforts of
Haines City citrus grower
Buster Pratt, the group pro-
vides Diaprepes information
and education and promotes

pest management research.
Highlights from the meeting
included CREC and USDA-ARS
updates on several promising
rootstocks that are resistant to
Phythophthora nicotianae and
P palmivora, and able to with-
stand mechanical damage
caused by Diaprepes feeding.
Various genetic methods are
being used to also incorporate
other characteristics such as re-

distance to tristeza and other dis- ment of Entomology and
eases. Other reports included Nematology, USDA-ARS in

Dr. Mike Martin Accepts
NM State Presidency
Dr. Mike Martin, currently UF Senior Vice
President of Agriculture and Natural
Resources, has been named president of
New Mexico State University and will leave
UF/IFAS, effective July 1. "The UF/IFAS
administration is first rate and President
Bernie Machen is charting a course toward
continued excellence for the university.
Over the next few months, I will work to
ensure a smooth leadership/administrative
transition for UF/IFAS. And I hope to find
the opportunity to thank each of you for
your friendship. We will soonbecome New
Mexico State Aggies, but will always keep
Gator spirit in our hearts," wrote Dr. Martin
in an open letter distributed IFAS-wide.

UF Business Cards
The optional use of the UF athletic Gator
head logo on UF business cards has been
approved. Order forms are available online
at ics.ifas.ufl.edu/Bc.PDF. Specify your
request for a Gator head on the business
card request form. Black and white and
color printing are available (extra charges
may apply for color printing and color
logos). Contact the IFAS Communications
office (Suncom 622-2411) for ordering and
price information.

Photo Corner
Does your digital camera have a long "lag
time" that is, a delay from whenyou press
the shutter release to when the camera
actually takes the photo? Try setting the
autofocus and autoexposure (usually by
pressing the shutter halfway and holding
it) before you need to capture your shot.
On many cameras, this will usually reduce
the lag time. High-end and newer cameras
have improved technology with reduced
or very short lag times.

Hall of Fame... from p. 1
have made major contributions to the
Florida citrus industry. Bice, deceased, was
recognized for his work with Farm Credit.
Crews was known as an innovative citrus
grower and one of the first to use high-
density plantings and microjet irrigation.
Lins, deceased, worked for Seald Sweet
Growers, Inc., and helped open new markets
in Japan and Europe. Roper is a Winter
Garden grower and citrus packer.

Neil Berger Visits
UF President Machen
Neil Berger and his wife, Michele, were in-
vited to a luncheon honoring UF employees
with 36+ years of service at the home of UF
President Bernie Machen and his wife, Chris.
Neil, who currently works for Dr. Ron
Brlansky, has worked at CREC for 37 years.
Other guests, about 20 total, included a
sergeant with the campus police and
employees from the IFAS centers in
Homestead, Ft. Pierce, Hastings and
Bradenton. Neil said that the original idea
was to invite UF employees with 25 or more
years of service, but that would have included
over 900 people!
President Machen's home, which is
located north of campus, is university-owned

and often used for university functions.
During the luncheon, which Neil described
as an "elaborate" spread, the guests were
entertained by a student musician at the
piano. Neil and Michele had the
opportunity to enjoy the home's beautiful
gardens and furnishings.

Ayna is a senior agronomy major at
Zamorano University in Honduras. Stu-
dents are required to do an internship be-
fore graduating, and only the top students
are selected for foreign internships outside
of Honduras. Ayna is learning molecular
biology and electron microscopy lab tech-
niques and is helping out in the greenhouse.
She is staying in the dorms and will return
to Honduras on May 1.

was selected as one of four
national finalists for the
American Chemical Society's
Agricultural and Food Chemistry
Division Graduate Student
Research Competition. It \\.a a
distinct honor to be selected as
one of the finalists," said her

Rouseff, who added that the field
included applicants from the U.S.,
Canada and England. Dr. Rouseff also noted
that the competition is "very, very tough."
As a finalist, she received travel expenses to
