Welcome

Welcome to the New Varieties Development & Management Corporation.


ANNOUNCEMENTS

NVDMC is always looking for people interested in attending and participating in variety displays and evaluations. NVDMC maintains an email database of interest parties, and extends invitations as opportunities arise. Attendance requires approximately one hour of time, plus travel. Participants are not required to attend every month. NVDMC is looking for growers, processors, packers, marketers and industry representatives. If interested, contact NVDMC.

Do you remember an old line Florida variety that is no longer grown commercially – that has characteristics or traits that should be preserved? Please contact NVDMC. Please share your knowledge of these varieties and any known budwood source. Much of Florida’s unique material will be lost if we don’t work together to preserve it.

Florida has very active variety development and evaluation programs. However, many of the world’s most interesting varieties were natural mutations and sports. If you have or know of a natural citrus mutation that could be of commercial value, please contact NVDMC. This material must be identified, cleaned up and preserved.
