Center for Viticultural Sciences
The mission of the Center for Viticultural Sciences and Small Fruit Research is to conduct research and provide service and support that will help the viticulture industry in Florida to become a viable industry (Florida Viticulture Policy Act, 1978).
Advances in both veterinary medicine technology and technique are the fuel firing the increased demand for well-trained individuals to work as veterinary technologists.
Center for Viticulture and Small Fruit Research
The Center for Viticulture and Small Fruits Research (CVSFR) in the College of Agriculture and Food Sciences at Florida Agriculture and Mechanical University was established by the Florida Legislature in 1978 to “build a long term program focused on the development of improved grapes via traditional breeding, biotechnology and in-vitro selection. The University provides research and technical support to enhance grape products, demonstrate health benefits, protect vineyards from pest and disease, and address other issues of importance to the successful expansion of the grape growing industry” (Florida State Viticulture Plan, 2006).
The Center’s mission is to conduct basic and applied research and provide service that will promote the development of a viable viticulture industry in Florida (Florida Viticulture Policy Act. 1978, Florida Statute 599.003c)
