Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam opens to a packed house in Blountstown, FL late this afternoon (Tuesday), with area residents participating in a listening session hosted by his Department.
Reviewing the latest information available regarding damage assessments for various crops in the region, Putnam pointed out there has been devastating damage to many crops including some that have no established “programs” in place to work within to help them rebuild.
Many political representatives and other entities were present to answer questions of area farmers looking for various types of help.
Stay tuned for comments from some of those involved, and for more details from this meeting as the Florida panhandle and other areas of our deep southeast region continue to deal with the devastating aftermath that Hurricane Michael left in his wake.
