#HurricaneIrma WRECKS #FLORIDA AG

Florida’s fruit growers and farmers are beginning to assess Hurricane Irma’s damage to the state’s citrus, sugar cane and vegetable crops – and it looks as though it will be extensive. “Irma went right up the middle. It didn’t matter where you were, because Irma was so wide,” said Mark Hudson, Florida state statistician with USDA-NASS. The Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association is reporting a 50 to 70 percent crop loss in South Florida, depending on the region. (MSN Money)
