Spyke Shares Advanced Citrus Production System Knowledge

Dan Citrus, Florida

Pete Spyke of Fort Pierce

Pete Spyke of Fort Pierce is believed to be the first Florida citrus grower to use the advanced citrus production system, based on open hydroponics and high-density plantings. The system is often touted as a way for growers to get high production out of their groves early, before greening takes a huge toll. In these reports Spyke talks about the system’s origin and costs, its benefits even if greening is not an issue, and what it takes for growers to convert to such a system.
