Mike Sparks, executive vice president/CEO of Florida Citrus Mutual, issued the following report:

“As you know, a big part of Mutual’s mission over the past three years was to try and uncover, create and support grower incentive programs to get more trees in the ground and rebuild our industry. Through the hard work of Commissioner Adam Putnam and his staff I am pleased to announce FDACS’ Citrus Grove Renovation/Re-establishment Support Program. The $5.5 million program is designed to help growers re-establish citrus groves by providing 75 percent cost-share on eligible improvements in irrigation and nutrient management and 100 percent on engineering and design costs.

“Growers are eligible for up to $250,000 on improvements to irrigation and nutrient management for replanting or re-establishing groves. The program is available now and FDACS is accepting applications.”
