Most of the UF publications divide
the state of Florida into three sections: southern, central, and northern.
Recommendations for northern Florida will usually be applicable to the
entire Coastal South region, from Texas to South Carolina. (When in doubt,
consult your county's Cooperative — they really are — Extension Office.)
Many of these publications are available in "Portable Document Format" (PDF) and require
that you have Adobe Acrobat Reader® software on your computer.
If the on-screen (HTML) version of the publication has this symbol in the upper-right corner of the screen
it means you can download a printable version of the document in PDF format. You may refer to our
article on how to set up and use the Acrobat Reader for more information.
We recommend that you first take a look at the HTML version of the
document you're interested in before downloading the PDF version for
printing later. (HTML is the standard World Wide Web format for
displaying documents online.)
We also recommend that if you plan to print a number
of the documents (it's hard to resist), set the left print margin so
that it's wide enough for a three-hole punch — then save the documents
in a three-ring binder.
