Date:11/20/2013

Citrus Variety Collection is one of the world's most diverse living collections of citrus and related types with approximately 1,000 different varieties (including mandarins, blood oranges, navel oranges, citrons, clementines, tangors, grapefruit, Valencia oranges, and pummelos).

In total, NIFA announced nearly $9 million in grants for research into issues affecting plant breeding and production, leading to improvements in plants that are critical to the sustainability and competitiveness of American agriculture. A list of research institutions receiving the grants can be found here. Details of the funded research projects can be found here.

The awards were made under the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative Foundational Program priority area of plant breeding for agricultural production.
