Storm Damage to Florida Agriculture May Be Felt Around the World

"By some estimates, Hurricane Frances ruined between half to two-thirds of Florida's $205 million grapefruit crop, a large portion of which is exported to Japan. Frances, along with Hurricane Charley three weeks earlier, may have caused between $800 million and $1 billion worth of damage to Florida's $6.4 billion worth of crops.

Florida produces about three-quarters of the nation's grapefruit and the United States dominates the world grapefruit market. So any fruit lost will be felt strongly on the world market."



But I guess you probably have other worries than grapefruit just now...

And now there is a good risk of Ivan hitting Floirda as well. There may not be much in the way of citrus left by the time Ivan is finished.

Have these storms affected the orange crop? I'm wondering if orange juice prices might increase. Hopefully the trees are still doing ok.

The crops are flooded..So much of Florida is flooded right now it's not even funny. My guess is YES the prices will go up , crops are ruined.We drove I-4 and there is pratically a river flowing beside it. St John's River and Lake Monroe and all other lakes are so swollen. And here we go again ....here comes Ivan,hopefully this one is quick and doesn't stall. I keep giving this link but it's a really good one for Centrel Florida Local Newswww.WESH.com...
