    The Citrus Variety Collection and Citrus Experiment Station were established in Riverside, California in the early 1900s to support the needs of the developing citrus industry in Southern California. The Citrus Experiment Station became the foundation of the University of California Riverside campus and has remained at the forefront of agricultural and citrus research.

    The Citrus Experiment Station The Origins of the Citrus Experiment Station The year 1907 was a good one for citrus growers in the Riverside area. In January of that year, an agricultural professor reported at a citrus meeting held in Riverside that $5,000 an acre was "by no means exceptional" earnings for citrus orchards in one season.

    The history of the University of California, Riverside, or UCR, started in 1907 when UCR was the University's Citrus Experiment Station. By the 1950s, the University had established a teaching-focused liberal arts curriculum at the site, in the spirit of a small liberal arts college, but California's rapidly growing population made it necessary for the Riverside campus to become a full-fledged general campus of the UC system, and it was so designated in 1959.

    The Department of Botany and Plant Sciences traces its lineage to 1907 when the University of California developed the Citrus Experiment Station in Riverside. Plant scientists played a key role in the success of the Citrus Experiment Station. Scientists in the 1940s identified a tristeza-resistant rootstock to solve a disease problem that threatened to wipe out the state's citrus industry. The grapefruit varieties Oroblanco and Melogold - as well as the recently released Gold Nugget, a sweet, seedless mandarin - are among the many citrus varieties bred by plant scientists at UCR. The department is fittingly headquartered in Batchelor Hall, named for Leon D. Batchelor,the fourth and longest-serving director of the Citrus Experiment Station who spearheaded the effort to develop better rootstocks and varieties to combat diseases and improve fruit quality.

    Since 1978 the Department has expanded in scope and diversity, with greater emphasis on research in basic plant biology, plant genetics, and ecology. The Department was probably best-known for strong programs in plant physiology, particularly stress responses, and hosted an international symposium series initially titled Symposium in Botany, and later the Symposium in Plant Physiology (1985-1999), and Symposium in Plant Biology (2001- date). Through the 1980s and 1990s the Department gradually increased strength in the emerging field of plant molecular biology and cell biology, leading to establishment of the interdepartmental Center for Plant Cell Biology (CEPCEB) in 2002 under the directorship of Professor Natasha Raikhel. In 2009, about one third of our faculty moved to the new state-of-the-art Genomics building located across the street from Batchelor Hall. The department continues to have several outstanding research programs in basic and applied genetics. The plant ecology gro...

    BPSC faculty have made hundreds of important discoveries and contributions to plant biology, agriculture and ecology. A few examples are highlighted below. The effects of mineral nutrients on the yield, fruit size and quality of citrus fruit was poorly understood prior to research on this topic by UCR professors Tom Embleton, W. W. “Bill” Jones, and Chuck Labanauskas. They conducted experiments that established the effects of different macro- and micronutrients on fruit quality, and developed leaf composition analysis as an important tool for growers to assess tree nutrient status and determine citrus fertilization requirements. The standards developed by this team are still used by many citrus growers and advisors worldwide. Development of plant tissue culture for clonal propagation and recovery of pathogen-free plants was pioneered at UCR by Professor Toshio Murashige. This technique remains an essential component of most plant biotechnology and is widely employed for propagation...
