Agriculture in Florida

Agriculture and citrus production have been part of Florida since before statehood. This guide from the State Library of Florida explores their role in Florida history and in modern times. 

If you work in agriculture, citrus or related industries for the State of Florida, and you have a State Library card, you can access e-books, online journals and other resources for free. 

We can also deliver books and research articles directly to your office.  

Other researchers can request most of these materials through their local public library. 

Links within the bibliographies take you to information in our catalog or to more information on external sites.
