For all you citrus enthusiasts, there are some key events planned this year that you won’t want to miss.
The Florida Grower Citrus Show
Fort Pierce, April 13
Now in its 77th year and under new management, this show will have a whole new look as well as a condensed one-day format. This year, the trade show is kicking it up a notch with a tailgate party complete with food from more than 50 exhibitors. Topics will include research from the “Millennium Block,” plant nutrition, and methods for managing citrus greening. Plus, there will be a canine demonstration showing how dogs can detect pest insects in crops.

National OJ Day
For most people, May the Fourth is either an apt time for a Star Wars pun or the calm before Cinco de Mayo. But there’s actually more to it than that. It’s National OJ Day, making it the perfect time to tout the health benefits of pure Florida gold. Shout it from the rooftops or maybe just your back porch and social media. Either way, make sure to celebrate Florida’s citrus industry. It’s just one more way you can #ThankAFarmer.
