Florida Citrus Forecast Live Broadcast Set For Noon Oct. 12


The annual October citrus crop forecast from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service will be broadcast live for the 23rd consecutive year, at noon Oct. 12 on the Southeast AgNet Radio Network and online at www.SoutheastAgNet.com, www.AgNetWest.com and www.CitrusIndustry.net.

Due to Hurricane Irma’s destruction coupled with HLB disease impacts on the citrus crop in recent years, community-wide interest in this Citrus Crop Forecast announcement is unprecedented this year among growers, industry, suppliers, lenders, businesses, and local and state officials.

The audience for this year’s LIVE network coverage awaits to learn how USDA expects to handle projecting the crop size considering these huge added challenges.

As concern grows about Florida citrus crop declines, growers, industry leaders and newsmakers from around the state are expected to gather in unprecedented numbers to hear this broadcast together as it goes public. Several citrus organizations will host members at Bert J Harris Jr. Agricultural Center in Sebring, FL.

The live stream will be available online at this address http://citrusindustry.net/citrus-crop-forecast/
