UF/IFAS plant breeders actively contribute to shaping the next generation of highly skilled plant breeders. Although our interdisciplinary Ph.D. degree in plant breeding officially began in the fall of 2021, our faculty has a longstanding legacy of successfully training and graduating accomplished breeders over several decades. These graduates have played integral roles in advancing productive and innovative plant breeding programs, both in the United States and internationally, within the public and private sectors. Our alumni continue to be in high demand among breeding teams in universities across the US and other countries, as well as by private companies and global institutions. Some have even assumed faculty positions at UF. Explore examples of current alumni positions over the years, updated as of March 2021.
