For those of you who are familiar with our breeding programs, you’ll enjoy seeing some of our scientists on the screen.  For those who aren’t familiar with IFAS development of new varieties, it is well worth the watch and I’d encourage you to do so.  Our breeding program and the scientists engaged in breeding at UF are world class.”
