As the agricultural statistics administrator with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Florida Agricultural Statistics Service, Candi Erick has been a key leader in the Florida citrus industry. You might recognize her as the “crop forecast lady.” Read a past Citrus Industry magazine feature about her here.

Erick recently retired after a long, fulfilling career of working with Florida citrus growers. Many of her coworkers and industry friends gathered together last month to celebrate her retirement.
