This week’s featured video was published by the Florida Department of Agriculture to highlight one of this year’s Florida Ag Hall of Fame inductees. Dr. John Woeste was the Dean of UF/IFAS Extension from 1976 to 1995. Much of the success of UF/IFAS Extension was built off of the vision and leadership he provided during this time period. This video shares some of the highlights of a man who dedicated his life to improving agriculture in America. Dr Woeste was inducted into the Ag Hall of Fame on February 14, 2023, at the Florida State Fair.
A longtime champion and tireless supporter of Florida agriculture, Dr. John T. Woeste is a retired dean and professor emeritus of the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS)… With visionary leadership and an innovative approach, Dr. Woeste championed the selection, professional growth and development of 400 Extension Service faculty, specialists, agents and staff who served the entire state of Florida.
