Our hats are off to any mainstream news outlet in Florida that takes time to report on one of the state’s most important industries, that of agriculture, once in a while. As a daily agriculture news reporter and farm broadcaster in Florida for 30 years now, it has always amazed me that more major news outlets don’t invest a little time and effort to cover this major industry more regularly for readers and listeners in this fourth most populous state. But once in a while when they do, we are glad to recognize their efforts, as I do in this post and short radio commentary herein. If you want to read the entire 26-part series that ran in December in the Sarasota Herald Tribune, you can do so on-line by clicking here.
