Florida Citrus Mutual has its annual series of local grower meetings coming up soon. Tavares April 28, Lake Alfred April 30, Vero Beach May 5, and Arcadia May 7. Each meeting will begin at 6:30 p. m. and will feature dinner and talks from staff. Meanwhile, Mutual’s recent newsletter confirms what we’ve reported previously from Tallahassee, that more citrus research dollars and any fix for “free rider” should not be expected from this year’s Legislative Session. Hear more in this report, and contact Mutual in Lakeland for further meeting details 863-682-1111.
