This project consists of the creation of a state-of-the-art facility to carry out blueberry breeding, research, extension, and instruction in the United States. It will be a single story, roughly 9,800 GSF facility dedicated to blueberry research, aiding in developing cultivars faster to help Florida producers and enhancing UF’s status as a leader in blueberry breeding and research. It will contain molecular, tissue, culture, and fruit quality laboratories, as well as instructional rooms for lectures and the needed support space for the facility to be fully self-contained. This project is currently under construction and is expected to be completed in early 2022.
