Spring 2010

As discussed at our Regional Advisory Committee meetings last fall, our faculty have revised the economic value of agriculture and related industries to reflect current trends. Thus, please see the attached presentation as well as a copy of our recent EDIS publication FE829, entitled "Economic Contributions of Florida’s Agricultural, Natural Resource, Food and Kindred Product Manufacturing and Distribution, and Service Industries in 2008." Mr. John Hoblick, President of Florida Farm Bureau, will use parts of this presentation to brief the legislative agriculture committees on the value of agriculture and related industries to Florida’s economy. 

This report and presentation was prepared by Dr. Alan Hodges who can be contacted at:
