We have enjoyed dedicating the airtime and producing these features for the Department each and every Friday for these past ten years. A whole decade, that’s a lot of broadcasts. Certainly we will continue to check in with FDOC news as appropriate from time to time, and we wish FDOC the best in its new grower communications efforts to include regular columns in Citrus Industry Magazine. Hear more about it in the reports posted herein above.
