The methodology chosen to collect the data consisted of surveying growers directly so as to reflect their costs. The main changes this season were the decrease in fertilizer and nutritionals spending, and the increase in insecticides. The total cost of production for processed oranges in 2019/20 was $2,095.05 per acre.</p> 2021-05-18T15:45:58-04:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://journals.flvc.org/edis/article/view/128230 A Close-up Look at Screens for Excluding Asian Citrus Psyllids 2021-06-07T16:39:44-04:00 Timothy A.

La industria de la cerveza artesanal de Florida ha experimentado un crecimiento significativo en los últimos 10 años, con 285 cervecerías que produjeron 42.6 millones de galones de cerveza y generaron un impacto económico de $3.6 mil millones en 2018 (Brewers Association 2018). Para responder a su fuerte demanda de lúpulos cultivados localmente, un equipo de investigación de lúpulo interdisciplinario está estudiando las prácticas óptimas de manejo de cultivos para este cultivo emergente en el Centro de Educación e Investigación de la Costa del Golfo de UF/IFAS (GCREC). En Florida, el principal factor que limita el rendimiento es la floración prematura inducida por las insuficientes las horas de luz diarias. Este artículo proporciona recomendaciones para el uso de iluminación suplementaria en el control de floración del lúpulo en Florida.</p> 2021-05-12T17:27:14-04:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://journals.flvc.org/edis/article/view/127543 Selección y Preparación del Material de Trasplante para la Producción Exitosa de Lúpulos en Florida 2021-05-21T10:48:52-04:00 Shinsuke Agehara sagehara@ufl.edu Aleyda Acosta-Rangel aleydaacosta@gmail.com Mariel Gallardo mariel.gallardos@ufl.edu Gary Vallad gvallad@ufl.edu <p>Lúpulo, un ingrediente esencial de la cerveza, tiene el potencial de desarrollarse como un cultivo alternativo viable en Florida.

Wright alwr@ufl.edu <p>Lettuce is the most popular ingredient in salads and salad mixes consumed in the United States. Florida's subtropical climate facilitates lettuce production from fall through spring, but the warm and moist conditions are also favorable for insect proliferation and damage. Insect pests cause direct (feeding) and indirect (contamination) damages to the lettuce crop. This manuscript presents data on cultivars and breeding lines with tolerance to some of these pests.
