E. T. York, the Provost of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) is interviewed by Jack Detweiler. Detweiler asks E.T. York various questions about the state of Florida agriculture such as the trends, the effect of the program Operation DARE (Developing Agricultural Resources Effectively), the future of small farms, what role the University of Florida is playing, and other questions.  The DARE program studied a ten year period from 1965-1975 and during the program York mentions that the program is at the halfway point so this radio program was probably broadcast around 1970.
