Looking for a Disaster Declaration

Randall Weiseman Florida, Specialty Crops, Vegetables, Weather

We remind growers that Governor Crist declared a state of emergency late last week for Brevard, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Lake, Nassau, Orange, Putnam, Seminole, St. Johns and Volusia counties. This enables farmers to quickly harvest and transport their crops to help mitigate further losses from the recent rain fall. The Commissioner of Agriculture’s office is hoping to have a disaster declaration from the Secretary of Agriculture soon.
