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.
Extension and Outreach
A major component of the Center activities is its extension and outreach program. The faculty and staff work closely with the state viticulture and horticulture industry and assist growers by providing new relevant scientific information and hands on training. The Center conducts on site visits, workshops on pruning, vineyard establishment and management practices year around.
