Putnam on Hurricane Irma’s Impact to Florida Citrus

Dan Citrus, Florida, Industry News Release

citrusI took an aerial tour to survey areas impacted by Hurricane Irma, including citrus groves in Central and Southwest Florida.

It’s still too early to know the full extent of the damage to Florida citrus. But after touring groves on foot and by air, it’s clear that our signature crop has suffered serious and devastating losses from Hurricane Irma.

But know this – we will do everything we can in the coming days, weeks and months to help support Florida’s farmers, ranchers and growers impacted by this storm.
