If there was anyone that could be dubbed a science wizard, it might be Dr. Jude Grosser of the University of Florida. Dr. Grosser has made a career of edgy innovation, creating new solutions that define the forefront of genetic improvements in citrus. He has mastered unconventional techniques that produce new variants of trees (both their scions and rootstocks) that bring improved production quality to Florida’s fresh fruit and orange juice industries. Currently he is a key strategist in the fight to save Florida citrus, where some of his solutions are being tested, and don’t face the regulatory impediments of “GMO” citrus trees.
