Title: Water and Nutrient Management Practices for Sustainable Citrus Production

Speaker: Dr. Davie M. Kadyampakeni, Assistant Professor, University of Florida-Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Soil and Water Sciences Department, Citrus Research and Education Center

This webinar will highlight:
Current Florida citrus production is about 50% of national production. Good water and nutrient management are key strategies for maintaining high yields in citrus. My program seeks the following short-, medium- and long-term goals: 1) Develop and implement sustainable strategies that optimize water management for citrus production, conservation of water, and water quality; 2) Conduct research to improve water and nutrient use efficiency in citrus production systems and maximizing productivity of citrus trees affected by Huanglongbing (HLB) disease; 3) Develop local and regional water use models taking into consideration citrus planting systems, tree water requirements, irrigation scenarios, and water use for cold protection; 4) Apply precision agricultural technologies for local and regional water management; and 5) Develop best management practices for water conservation and quality maintenance for surface and ground water sources. Current research targets optimizing nutrient and water application and delivery methods for achieving citrus best management practices. Methods to achieve these goals include 1) conducting greenhouse and field experiments, 2) performing computer simulations for soil-water-plant processes, 3) delivering extension/outreach programs for commercial citrus growers and industry representatives and 4) leveraging funding opportunities with UF collaborators and scientists from other institutions and universities.
