Long Description:
The Everglades Experiment Station was established on this site in 1921 to help families deal with the challenges of living and working in the area. Soil nutrient deficiencies and two major hurricanes in 1926 and 1928 hindered early research. UF faculty in agronomy, horticulture, soil science and animal science soon began to develop the management solutions that made Everglades agriculture possible. That research continues and is focused on designing the best management practices for the area's organic soil in order to improve water quality, reduce pesticide inputs, develop profitable crop varieties, and streamline crop and water management operations. These efforts have helped create an industry in the Everglades that contributes to the quality of life enjoyed by all Florida residents.
