Fittingly on National Ag Day, a crowd of dignitaries, growers, industry stakeholders, and other interested parties gathered at the UF/IFAS Mid-Florida Research and Education Center (MREC) in Apopka to get a first look at the brand new citrus nursery research greenhouse. The ultra-modern $200,000 structure was a gift fromÂ Florida Nursery, Growers & Landscape Associationâ€™s (FNGLA) Citrus Nursery Division.
A brief dedication ceremony was held to mark the special occasion. Florida Grower editors Frank Giles and Paul Rusnak were on hand for the event. To view the sights captured through their camera lenses, check out the gallery below.
